Join your host Wes Blackman for a special show featuring readings from the closed door Lake Worth City Commission Meeting and various depositions of elected officials and other players in the Greater Bay vs. City of Lake Worth legal fight. Last November, the Ctiy decided to settle the lawsuit, which was filed by Greater Bay for breech of contract over the right to redevelop the beach. The settlement amount was for $1.6 million and the city had already spent $800,000 defending itself in the action. This was after a series of mock trials where the city, had the case gone to a jury trail, lost anywhere from $5 to $20 million.
Yesterday, I retrieved 43 disks of data which includes all depositions and closed door attorney/client meetings spanning a period of 6 years. Over the summer, I will be uploading these documents to the cloud and, as an introduction, I thought a special half hour show would be a good way to introduce some of the contents of the documents.
Look for a link on wesblackman.blogspot.com where you will eventually be able to find the documents and read them yourself. As we know, it is important to know history so that it is less likely to repeat itself
