A new lawsuit filed against San Jose claims city officials signed illegal NDAs at Google’s behest to secure a $67 million land deal.
The First Amendment Coalition has been awarded $100,000 in attorneys’ fees in its successful public records lawsuit against Milpitas.
The former manager billed taxpayers for his own legal fees and then tried to cover his tracks, according to a newly released report.
The public’s right to know about a former Milpitas official’s alleged misconduct outweighs his right to privacy, according to a court ruling.
A Santa Clara County judge heard oral arguments from both sides on Monday and is expected to issue a ruling in the case within 90 days.
Milpitas once again finds itself at odds with its city manager, whose litigious posturing has triggered a probe into suspected corruption.
Milpitas City Manager Tom Williams is seeking a court order Friday to block a records release that would show his $1 million demand.
