The City Council has yet another special meeting today with a closed session starting at 1:30 p.m.
The Mission City has been without a City attorney for over six months. Wow.
The 49er Five fired former City Attorney Brian Doyle without cause in August, 2021. Doyle filed an “intent to sue” document with the City. Numerous sources think he has a good case against Councilmembers Anthony Becker, Raj Chahal, Suds Jain, Karen Hardy and Kevin Park.
Attorneys in other cities are saying that Santa Clara will find it difficult to find a new City Attorney because of the current Council majority’s personalities and style.
Here are other agenda items:
- Public Employee Appointment — Interim City Attorney
- Closed session: Conference with Legal Counsel-Existing Litigation — Forty Niners SC Stadium Company LLC, et al., v. Santa Clara Stadium Authority, Superior Court Action No 19CV355432 (filed 9/20/19), and Forty Niners SC Stadium Company LLC, et al., v. Santa Clara Stadium Authority, Demand for Arbitration through JAMS, filed 09/03/2021, consolidated with JAMS No. 110024318
- Closed session: Conference with Legal Counsel-Existing Litigation Forty Niners Stadium Management Company LLC and Forty Niners SC Stadium Company LLC v.
