If a defendant wins a civil right case against the LAPS / the LA superior court , how much would he get per day from the state of CA according to the law ? besides other damages ?
The current rate is pegged at $100 day with the limitation that "The wrongfully convicted person must show he did not 'contribute to the bringing about of his arrest or conviction for the crime with which he was charged.' This provision may prevent people who falsely confessed or pled guilty from receiving compensation."
The California Commission on the Fair Administration of Justice, a panel created to study the causes of wrongful convictions and suggest reforms to prevent and address injustice, has called for improvements in the state’s law compensating the wrongfully convicted to include reintegration services. The panel also recommended that the state increase its compensation from $36,500 per year of wrongful incarceration to the recommended federal level of $50,000 per year. A bill reflecting these recommendations is was considered by the state legislature in 2008 (AB 2937, Solorio).

Never heard of LAPS, but you cannot win a case against the court as it is immune, at lest in this setting, from such a suit.
No comment as to "other damages" as that would require a lot of speculation as to what entity or person(s) would be defendants and their potntial liability
