One Good (Law)Suit Deserves Another

LA Times: Animal Rights Group Files Free-Speech Claim -- The Animal Defense League-Los Angeles has filed a $3-million claim against the city of Los Angeles, alleging that City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo denied them their right to free speech.

If the city denies the claim, the attorney for the group said, he will file a lawsuit.

Let round 400 begin

Oh let them file. Useless fucks.

Maybe they should demand Boks gets fired.

Quick, start picketing his house. Get out your spray cans you losers.

The city has sued them I think three times. The city keeps suing them for the same things and losing. The city had to pay them money. Rocky is suing them as he's running for Attorney General and needs name recogition if he wants to stand a chance against Brown.

The city made a mistake. ADL never breaks the law. ALF breaks the law all the time. No one knows who ALF is. The city publicly stated in writing and at a press conference that ADL broke the law, committed felonies. That is slander per se, an automatic win for ADL if the City can't prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that ADL actually committed ALFs acts. I don't believe they'll be able to prove that. The city will again lose the case, have to pay money and ADL ends up looking like the good guy. The city with their frivolous lawsuits are playing right into the hand of ADL. The city is giving power to the group. It's a horrible shame.

All these animal nuts are the same. They use violence as an advocacy tool to protect animals.

The animal terrorists are radical idiots. You don't see other protesters go to the extremes this morons go crossing the line by going to the homes of people with their kids there and not caring that they terrorize an entire neighborhood. They make terrorists threats against city employees and they have the audacity to sue the city. Let's see thanks to Antonio Stuckey will sue, the animal radicals are suing and the list goes on.

I am glad the Mayor fired the incompetent Stuckey. Maybe it is a new Villaraigosa era. Maybe now he will start living up to all his campaign promises one by one. If people criticize him for the firing, he will be less apt to follow through with other things he promised. I think he should be thanked and asked to make good on everything else.

Funny how Stuckey only suddenly became "incompetent" when the mayor was pressed to finally keep a campaign promise. Before that he wasn't, except to the radical animalistas!

Didn't AV rise to his defense just a few weeks ago. Said Stuckey was doing a good job (that's bound to come up in appeals... I hope the media is paying attention this time).

Will AV, like Bush, just automatically become a "Brownie" noser, anytime the heat rises, and start backing away from his one established support?

(You betcha!)

Stuckey became "incompetent" in 30 days? (Or did AV just become "incontinent").

LA Times, 11/02

Under pressure from animal rights groups, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa praised the work of a new animal cruelty task force Tuesday, citing it as an example of renewed efforts to make the city a "better community" for animals.

The comments came at a news conference touting the task force's first felony conviction of an animal abuser. But the mayor also spoke about the large number of dogs euthanized in city shelters each year — a target of animal rights activists, who have staged protests at the homes of city employees, including Villaraigosa.

"We're committed to reducing the number of animals we kill in our own shelters," the mayor said. "And we're going to work together to lower that to 'low kill' or 'no kill' like they have in other cities, like New York and San Francisco and Philadelphia."

Villaraigosa was joined by Councilman Tony Cardenas, who created the task force, and Guerdon Stuckey, general manager of the Animal Services Department. Some animal rights activists have called for Stuckey's ouster, because he had no experience in animal services before the city hired him.

In January, during the mayoral campaign, Villaraigosa promised that he would fire Stuckey. But Tuesday he indicated that Stuckey would keep his job because he has committed himself to reducing the number of animals killed in shelters.

"Mr. Stuckey is standing here with us in support of that," the mayor said. "And so, to the extent that our managers understand that ultimately I got elected to move an agenda ahead, and they support that, then we'll go from there."

Stuckey was doing a bad job all along. He was never qualified for the position from the start. He had no animal experience. Had never even owned a pet ever. I have a feeling that the mayors office hadn't completed their evaluation of the GM when he said that Times quote. The elephant evaluation wasn't done until very recently as well.

After the evaluation when the Mayor found out how badly Stuckey messed up the Spaymobile contract, that he'd lied to the commissioners, that he refused to follow their orders, that he helped cover up major violations by employees...that is when he realized that he was incompetent. With the new guy Ed Boks available, who wouldn't fire Stuckey for Boks. Boks has 22 successful years of experience in turning troubled animal services depts around.

Right. Stuckey wasn't doing a good job. Not at all and Antonio did the right thing by cutting that tie, whether or not he actually did buckle under to the animal nuts, but most people think he did not.

Even Antonio haters should be open-minded on Stucky.

How many of you who are posting here now was around and active during the hiring of Stuckey?

Half of you didn't know who he was until "the man you love to hate" decided to fire him.

Keep this on the hush, but rumor is he got fired because he was black. Hey whadda I know? Don't kill the messenger..

Although I don't support Antonio he and the city council are also to blame for the mess with Stuckey. They all saw his resume but like the gutless morons they are they still voted to confirm him including AV. The city will find itself in the same mess guaranteed in 2006 with the conflicts of interest of all Antonio's appointments like Ramona Ripston, ACLU, Valerie who is suing the city because of LAX plan, Nelie Parra who is the wife of rook and sleazy bag of El Sereno Alvin Parra, John Mack, prez of police commission who is looking out for his own South LA instead of the entire city and who has been the most critical of LAPD because of his friends and goons like Nation of Islam and the list goes on.
