Brian D'Arcy, head of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power's largest employee union, is heading to court to try to fight a subpoena ordering him to explain how two nonprofits he co-manages have spent more than $40 million in ratepayer money since 2000. D'Arcy sent a letter to City Controller Ron Galperin and City Atty. Mike Feuer on Friday announcing his intention to ask a judge to stay enforcement of the subpoena, which was issued last week. D'Arcy's lawyer has asked for a court hearing Tuesday morning.  Galperin was not surprised by the move, said spokeswoman Suzy Jack.  "But he is disappointed at the continued efforts to stonewall and waste time and taxpayer resources, when [the union]

TRENTON, N.J. - A new investigative committee issued subpoenas Thursday for 17 individuals and 3 organizations as it launched a deeper look into the involvement of Gov. Chris Christie's administration in ordering closures that caused a massive September traffic jam on roads leading to the George Washington Bridge. The names on the list weren't immediately released, but they were expected to include Bridget Kelly, Christie's former deputy chief of staff, who weeks before the closures sent an email to a close ally of the governor on the Port Authority, the regional agency that controls the bridge.

TRENTON, N.J. -- A new investigative committee was preparing subpoenas Thursday for 17 individuals and three organizations as it launched a deeper look into how many employees or appointees of Gov.

Los Angeles police served the leader of the biggest union at the city Department of Water and Power with a subpoena on Friday for records on the spending of millions of dollars in ratepayer money by two secretive nonprofits that he co-manages. At the same time, Mayor Eric Garcetti took exception to union leader Brian D'Arcy's reported threat that he would sue the DWP's general manager personally if he disclosed the nonprofits' spending records. “What we need is transparency,” Garcetti said.

More than $40 million spent over the last decade to improve labor relations at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power has, instead, sparked an increasingly tense standoff between a union boss and the city's most powerful elected officials. City Controller Ron Galperin announced Wednesday afternoon that he was issuing subpoenas to compel Brian D'Arcy, leader of the DWP's largest employee union, to show where the millions went. The rare legal maneuver came hours after D'Arcy failed to appear in Galperin's office to begin an audit of two DWP affiliated nonprofits D'Arcy co-manages - the Joint Training Institute and the Joint Safety Institute.

Federal investigators have subpoenaed the city government in Moreno Valley for a wide range of documents, the latest development in an investigation that comes months after the homes of elected officials were searched, city officials said. Authorities have been tight-lipped about the nature of the investigation, although it has been described by some law enforcement officials as a probe of political corruption allegations in the city just west of Riverside.  On Tuesday, investigators requested a bounty of documents related to elected officials -- including the mayor, mayor pro tem and the three City Council members -- as well as those related to development projects and employment records for specific city workers, according to a detailed listing of the subpoenaed items in a memorandum sent by city manager Michelle Dawson to employees.  The FBI, through a spokeswoman, declined to confirm or deny whether subpoenas were issued.  Federal officials confirmed months ago that warrants had been issued to search the homes of a number of city officials, but did not disclose the reason for the investigation, noting that information in the case had been sealed.  Laura Eimiller, the FBI spokeswoman, said investigators had sought "evidence of allegations of criminal activity.
