Looks like City Attorney Mike Aguirre has gone after his old nemesis, the law firm Willkie Farr and Gallagher, LLP.
Willkie Farr, of course, was the firm that worked with Kroll Inc., the city’s one-time audit committee.
And it looks like he’s filed both criminal and civil actions against the firm for “professional negligence, intentional fraud, concealment, false claims and unfair business practices.” There are two cases. One is People of the State of California v. Willkie Farr and Gallagher. The other is City of San Diego v. Willkie Farr and Gallagher. The court didn’t have a case file yet, but they confirmed there’s a case. I’ll try to post the cases and some thoughts asap.
