Abandonment of City motion to dismiss
After expending significant energy and legal cost, we are astonished to learn that the City has decided to abandon its motion to dismiss the lawsuit. Given the revelations of incompetence and wrong doing that have dribbled out in the press over many months, we are not surprised. But why? And why now? Has the City decided to go to trial? Or has the City decided to seek a negotiated settlement, something that CFBB has been encouraging it to do for the last two years so that this dark cloud can be lifted from the City, and the taxpayer spared the cost of additional legal exposure?
