Democracy: Council Chambers, Not Courtrooms

In so many conversations about the potential for litigation, some lawyer will explain to the concerned public or company officials that, in effect, one can be sued for anything. Whether or not a plaintiff will prevail is an entirely different matter.
The problem is, if one is sued, one must defend oneself. If the suit is truly frivolous, one might secure relief from the courts in the form of summary judgment or swift dismissal. One might even secure attorneys’ fees or punitive damages. However, these options are not always available, and governments, because they recognize that the litigants often are members of the community too, are loath to be too aggressive in this regard.
Taxpayers pick up the tab when a city, county or special district is sued. There’s no such thing as ‘the city’s money’; it essentially comes from us, the residents, businesses, and visitors. When a city, county or special district must defend itself in court, we are the ones who pay.

In 1980, Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran fought in a series of boxing matches to determine the Welterweight champion of the world. Duran, nicknamed "Hands of Stone," outpunched the quicker and more agile Leonard to earn a unanimous decision in the first fight, called "The Brawl in Montreal."
Thought about RMPE?

Thought about RMPE?

As I wrap up our first online meeting for the League’s Risk Management for Public Entities (RMPE) study group, I would be remiss if I did not let everyone know of this group, once again, and how it can help you obtain your RMPE certification.
