And how did this come about?
Sent to every DA in the state? What? He can't "get Palco" by himself so now he wants the rest of the state to sign on? And the City and County of San Francisco signed on? Is Joe Cotchett involved? Is Stoen? Is this so Gallegos won't have to go do the oral arguments himself?
To all enviros, from Paul Gallegos:
We are interested in any DA's offices that want to file an Amicus Brief in our PL lawsuit. The issue is whether an entity can commit fraud in an administrative hearing and received Noer-Pennington Doctrine immunity and CCP 47(b) protection. Naturally, we believe they do not apply and, if they do, not to 17200 cases brought by a DA, AG, or CA. I have attached the San Franciso City Attorney's Amicus and will provide our briefs if any one is interested in viewing it. There is some time urgency. <<00444879.DOC>> <<00445121.DOC>>
