EX-CITY OFFICIAL LOSES YET ANOTHER ROUND IN COURT
11TH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS REFUSES TO REHEAR DECISION THAT DENIED LIMITED IMMUNITY TO CITY’S BUDGET DIRECTOR

In a not unexpected decision, judges at the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta refused to rehear the case of former City of Miami Budget Director Michael Boudreaux’s whose been arguing that instead of being charge with fraud, he should have been provided limited immunity in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s case against the City for transferring $37.5 million in reserve funds into the City’s General Fund to cover up gaps in the General Fund that kept falling below the $100 million reserve level.


The transfer of funds allowed the City to mask its financial problems while it raised approximately $153 million through bond offerings, snookering the bond holders into believing that the City was in better financial shape than it actually was.


To date the City has spent millions in attorney fees to fight these charges, even though all of the evidence clearly points to the City doing exactly what they have been accused of.


Instead of settling the case, and accepting responsibility, this case has become a giant welfare scheme for all of the outside lawyers involved, who obviously figure that as long as the taxpayers are the ones paying their fees they’ve pretty much got card blanche to keep the meter running by keeping the case going and appealing any and all decisions, that to date have all gone against the City and Boudreaux.


As I wrote in October, the City of Miami has spent millions and millions of dollars in what amount to little more than a giant welfare program for law firms friendly to whoever the City Attorney is at the time in defense of gross misbehavior by public officials, and this case is but the latest example of that practice.


First the crooked politicians and bureaucrats figure out a way to pull a fast one, and then when they get caught, the City Commission and the City Attorney conspire to fight the charges by going out and hiring an outside law firm - claiming that they City Attorney’s Office has a conflict of interest in representing the crooked politicians or bureaucrats - and then the meter starts clicking away, and as in this case, that meter is now well over $2 million dollars with no end in site.


It’s a legal form of highway robbery, and the people getting robbed are the taxpayers, first by the behavior of the crooked politicians and bureaucrats, and then by these law firms who somehow never seem to run out of billing opportunities.


It’s now 2015, and the case has yet gone to trial. but the tab for all of these lawyers keeps adding up.


It’s Miami, Bitches!
