California Briefing / Los Angeles

Outside counsel advised for city

November 11, 2009|Maeve Reston

A judge said Tuesday that City Controller Wendy Greuel should have outside legal counsel in a legal dispute between the former city attorney and Greuel's predecessor over the controller's authority to conduct audits that assess the performance of programs run by other elected officials.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark V. Mooney said he would delay entering a final decision for at least two weeks so the City Council could decide whether to allow Greuel to hire an outside lawyer.
