Miller Barondess Wins on Summary Judgment on Behalf of the County of Los Angeles

We obtained summary judgment in favor of the County of Los Angeles and the individual Board of Supervisors in a high-profile taxpayer lawsuit that received extensive media coverage.  The lawsuit alleged that the County’s top elected officials wasted millions of taxpayer dollars and violated the Brown Act in connection with the County’s budgeting process.  The plaintiff’s complaint alleged that our clients had violated more than a dozen statutory and constitutional provisions, including conflict of interest laws.  After two and a half years of hard-fought litigation, we succeeded in dismissing the entire lawsuit at summary judgment.
