What has Inglewood Mayor James Butts gotten residents into? City of Inglewood officials decided not to hold a regular city council meeting Tuesday, May 22nd, but found time to convene a special meeting, Thursday, May 24th, regarding the MSG v City of Inglewood lawsuit (YC 07275). A new lawsuit has been filed by Steve Ballmer in Murphy’s Bowl LLC against MSG Forum.
The city held the special meeting, presumably with less than 24 hours notice to the public, after a court hearing held Wednesday, May 23rd, where lawyers representing MSG requested the current case be consolidated with the new lawsuit.
Murphy’s Bowl LLC filed against the Forum on May 18, 2018, under case number YC072901.
How much will this new lawsuit cost Inglewood taxpayers?
Coincidentally the new lawsuits first court date is November 1st, which is 5 days prior to the Inglewood election, where voters will decide whether to return Mayor Butts’ to his seat.
With the news of his possibly benefitting from the city’s trash contract, his council mate Eloy Morales under investigation for taking a consulting contract with the same trash provider, the revelation Mayor Butts’ assistant earned over $300,000 in compensation in 2017and new complaints being filed for the council, including the city clerk and city treasurer possibly illegally inflating their salaries, Inglewood voters have a lot to consider.
