STATEMENT BY CITY ATTORNEY-ELECT MIKE FEUER’S TRANSITION SPOKESPERSON FOLLOWING TODAY'S SUPERIOR COURT RULING STRIKING THE COMPLAINT IN LAKE V. FEUER, ET AL.

Los Angeles, CA – City Attorney-elect Mike Feuer’s transition spokesperson Alex Ponder issued the following statement today after Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard Rico granted the motion by Mr. Feuer and all other defendants to strike the complaint in Lake v. Feuer et al., dismissing the case.

"Today the court affirmed what we have known since the beginning: that this was a baseless and politically-motivated lawsuit.  Mike is focused on his transition to the office of City Attorney and looks forward to working with everyone in Los Angeles who wants to build a bright future for our city."

Here's the Judge's ruling:



The lawsuit was Trutanch's headline grabbing attempt to stave off his inevitable removal from office, and had all the hallmarks of other lawsuits filed by the failed incumbent - intended for 'headline grabbing' only.

Trutanich's drubbing in the polls, and now in court, validates all those who worked tirelessly to bring closure to Trutanich's lie-laden thuggish tenure in public office, and to ensure responsible and ethical leadership in the City Attorney's office.

Congratulations to Mike Feuer and his team.

The court ruling in this case marks the end of the Trutanich era. A final footnote on who he really was, a loudmouthed thug who thought he could manipulate the legal system to force weaker people to obey the almighty Nuch. So much for that 'strong do as they will' slogan of his. He can stick it were the sun don't shine.

It is good to know that he was balling his eyes out Tuesday night in the back of his limo when he faced the reality of the election result. All his lies, new and old, failed as miserably as everything else he has done. He will forever be known as Carmen I am a LIAR Trutanich.
