A few readers suggested I try something different for Fridays. So here goes. These awards are inspired by the men and women of World Wrestling Entertainment. (WWE)
The Good — The Leg Drop Award
The California State Bar Association took some complaints seriously. They suspended Santa Clara Attorney John Mlnarik who’s also Dominic Caserta’s attorney and the President of the Santa Clara Rotary. Mlnarik bilked at least two clients. He can’t practice law for a year and is on probation for three.
The State Bar has been criticized in the past for sweeping stuff under the rug. But it didn’t happen in these two cases with Mlnarik. Kudos to them.
The Bad — The Jabroni Award
This was actually written a couple weeks ago by Miles Barber. But people at City Hall are still laughing about it this week, so it qualifies.
Barber thinks the City should have put tax dollars into the College Football Playoff National Championship game. Huh? Last year, Atlanta put in $12.5 million. Santa Clara put in nothing. In fact, the City will get reimbursed for all its expenses.
Kudos to the City leadership for protecting our tax money. Barber would be a lousy city manager.
