    settlement conference today

    today, me, my lawyers and a certain LA city and their lawyers met for a settlement conference.

    the city ended the day with an offer of $85,000.

    3 months ago it was $15,000....... then it was $35,000 and today it started out as $50,000.

    This meeting is a requirement by the court before trial so we all had to attend and the city was basically required to make a formal offer.

    The city knows that the precedent setting case for these types of issues of Glik vs Boston where the plantiff was awarded $170,000 plus lawyer fees and he only spent 1 day in jail.

    I know that as trials near cities man up and pay up.

    Depositions are supposed to start in 4 weeks.

    Work is defined by value, not by pain.

    and thus what is the value of civil rights and human rights and natural rights ?

    so far the city has put it at $85,000 but I put it much higher.

    juries have also put it much higher.

    Amazing how someone who lives in "ID" has so many issues in CA.

    Why would you wonder if he is mad? He seems legitimately curious. He suspects he is being lied to. I am pretty damned sure that you are lying about where you really live.
