During a telephone conversation on August 24, 2011, between the Montessori School’s Attorney Phil Toomey and City Attorney Carol Lynch, Mr. Toomey implied that litigation may result if the School and the City are not able to reach an agreement concerning the School’s ability to remove certain items from the Ladera Linda site.
A copy of the report from the City Attorney is on file with the City Clerk’s Office.
