Tomorrow is the "Sunland-Tujunga Dialogue", the controversial attempt by the City Attorney and Home Depot to avoid further litigation and try to reach some sort of compromise with the community over Home Depot's proposed store.
If a compromise can be reached, and Home Depot's new application to open their store is rapidly approved, per the stipulation agreement, then Home Depot will drop their $10,000,000.00 lawsuit against the City.
Anything less and Home Depot will resume their lawsuit.
The City Attorney's office has said that they are well prepared to vigorously defend the City against Home Depot if this whole process collapses.
Whether or not this "Dialogue" collapses depends on Home Depot.
-The "Dialogue" will not collapse if Home Depot leaves the paid supporters/shills at home this time.
-The "Dialogue" will not collapse if Home Depot is willing to finally understand that their store is not appropriate for this community.
-The "Dialogue" will not collapse if Home Depot makes a sincere apology for the way they have treated this community for the past four years, including the labeling of residents as racists, the bussed in supporters, the army of lobbyists, and saying in their press releases and website that they have "been working with the community, engaging in dialogue". They have not.
Anything less, and the "Dialogue" will likely collapse rapidly if not immediately.
