Congratulations to city council: your brilliant decision to reject a $30,000 cost the taxpayers almost double for less than a one year float. That's a heavy interest rate. settled for $50,000. Thanks for the extra $20K!

"police beat coordinator Kasi Beutel triumphantly notified the Downtown Organization that tickets for skateboarding on State Street were now $150."
Now that's 'rich', but "Skateboarding is not a crime." Or at least it shouldn't be.http://www.onionskin.com/venice75/dog...
I understand the SBPD has let this one back out into 'the yard' a little (New DUI checkpoint arrest by the new 'larger than life' KB. Back to her old tricks I suppose.
On Police for Lease?

The new criminal case is pure BS (and a conflict of interest for Dudley's office as the harbor Patrol Cop (officer Stetson) is married to a high ranking District Attorney in South County) It was a set up to attempt to cut the legs out from under DeNunzio's Federal Civil Rights law suit. (Interestingly, one must ask: If DeNunzio was drunk, why didn't he trip and fall when running instead of a sober LEO who is trained in the art of foot pursuit?) Only a week earlier, Federal Court Judge George Wu ruled that Santa Barbara District Attorney Contract employee Lessor J. michaels had violated DeNunzio's 4th Amendment Rights along with Tudor and 3 other SBPD cops with his illegal blood draw. Well it didn't work, and the new charge won't stick in court either. As for those who criticize my lawyering results, consider this: the veteran (Jerry Cox) who was beat and tazered at the Trader Joe's http://www.independent.com/news/2013/... ) had Sanger and Sweesyn represent him, and his case settled last May for $30,000. DeNunzio settled for more than 4 times that amount in spite of the fact that he is a less sympathetic plaintiff than the veteran's case.

Judges could easily safe millions and aid the support staff simply by no longer codling District Attorney's and start granting meritorious defense motions dismissing weak prosecutions, and preventing serial trials of weak cases after hung juries. If the DA won't stop prosecuting weak cases and judges don't stop vindictive prosecutions by certain junior DDAs with poor judgement like Justin Nathan Greene, then they are compounding, not solving the problem.

I'm proud of the legal victory that my friends and colleagues William Makler and Robin Unander have obtained on behalf of the class of people that they represented in this civil action to restore the good name of the many citizens who were falsely accused by CHP officers.

Or, he could make the 'Sintra Report' public and I would consider that repentance.

Santa Barbara is much better off without him. Jim Armstrong felt it was a good idea to refuse to compensate a homeowner after the city of SB ripped up his driveway. All the homeowner wanted was to have his driveway restored to the condition it was in before city workers wrongfully tore it up.Talk to JOSEPH LIEBMAN, Esq. Law Offices of Joseph Liebman, 4250 Mariposa Dr. Santa Barbara, Ca. 93110. email@example.com tel. 805 563.2421 fax 805 569.6045 cell 805 448.5656. He was the lawyer on Brost Versus City of SB. Trial took place 12-13-13 before Judge Anderle and the concerned property was located at 478 Conejo Road. Thanks to Armstrong, instead of costing the city $25,000 in repairs it cost that plus another $100,000 in attorney's fees. Oh, and don't forget, the City paid $11,000 to 'The Sintra Group' to investigate Peter Lance's News Press allegations against SBPD officer Kasi Beutel, and Armstrong buried that report in Beutel's personnel file, so the public has never seen it.
His departure is good news that could only be better if we could renege on his pension.
