Welcome to my website. My name is Walter W. Moore, and I'm licensed to sue. I am trial attorney and former candidate for Mayor of Los Angeles. If you need a lawyer or a reasonably amusing essay, you've come to the right place.
As I recall, the latest Letter of Agreement, voted on by the members of the Coalition, agreed to drop legal action regarding this very subject. However, the bargaining unit for the City Attorneys rejected the Letter of Agreement -- twice -- so they now have to file on their own behalf. I do believe they have a good chance of prevailing, since the language in the original MOU amendment (Oct 2009) was pretty clear that, failing "Mutual Gains Bargaining" techniques with respect to furloughs in FY 2010-11, the two parties were to use "traditional" bargaining techniques. Instead, the City went straight to imposing furloughs.
