Will City Attorney Mike Feuer's $20 Million Lawsuit against Da Vinci Complex Owner include Investigation of City Oversight of Torched Project?

As Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer announces his $20 Million Dollars Lawsuit against torched, Da Vinci Complex Owner GH Palmer Associates, discerning observers should ponder if the Second Term-seeking Officeholder, will also conduct an Investigation of City Departments Oversight of the controversial Development.

Is City Attorney Mike Feuer in denial of City Oversight Issues, regarding the torched Da Vinci Complex Inferno?
** Blogger's Note: In an extraordinary announcement, but not surprising to the intuitive observer, City Attorney Mike Feuer has filed a $20 Million Dollars Lawsuit against GH Palmer Associates, citing its alleged, negligence in not taking, pro-active (and required) actions to prevent the torching of its controversial Da Vinci Development, along the 110 Freeway in December of 2014. 
The massive inferno, which sent flames shooting hundreds of feet into the evening sky, not only turned a controversial development into ashes, but also did damages to neighboring buildings, housing City and LA County Departments, which the Lawsuit seeks to recover the costs in damages to city infrastructure.
Yet, while City Attorney Feuer  garners media attention for his legal action directed at the controversial Geoff Palmer-owned Development Company, a unwanted byproduct of today's announcement, is also the potential, inconvenient disclosures of questionable oversight issues among multiple city agencies ........, and the favorable considerations granted the gutted project by the likes of PLUM City Council Committee Chairperson, CD 14 Officeholder Jose Huizar (with the support from the likes of the Central City Association).

Councilman Huizar, who succeeded former CD 1 City Councilman Ed Reyes as the PLUM Committee Chairperson in 2013, also was the major beneficiary of the controversial 2014 Redistricting, with Council District 14 being reconfigure to include most of Downtown LA within its new boundaries, at the detriment to former City Councilwoman Jan Perry's CD 9.
Thus, it was not surprising that when the torched Da Vinci Development was still smoldering the morning after its alleged, deliberate torching, the then re-election seeking Officeholder, was garnering himself free media in demanding a prompt investigation into catching those responsible (meanwhile, a targeted Firebombing of African-American Families was ignored for weeks by the Councilman). .

Now over a year after, with a $170,000 Reward still pending, the legal remedy taken by City Attorney Feuer, are bound to ignite questions regarding the haste of the Downtown LA-representing Officeholder's actions ......., and the possible motivations, considering the specifics outlined in the City Attorney's Office Press Release.

The lawsuit alleges GH Palmer Associates used improper and defective construction methods including: failing to have an appropriate fire protection plan; failing to compartmentalize construction; failing to property install fire walls or doors; having an appropriate water supply for fire suppression; and failing to have appropriate security measures that would prevent incursion by unwanted individuals.

Those supposed facts ARE SURE to further fan the flames of speculation, that Huizar's support of Palmer's controversial Project (with reciprocal campaign support), came with "accommodations from city agencies", that conjures memories of an alleged "City-wide Sam", who could pull and approve any permit, for the right price (with approval from certain Officeholders), again allegedly.

In ending, we should note for the record that CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar, is out of country in Puebla, Mexico, attending a Smart City Expo. Via his Twitter Account.

Happy to speak in a panel at Puebla about 's transformation, w/more than 5,000 attendees.

Does a "Downtown LA Transformation" come at a price to Public Safety?

Your thoughts ..............
