The judge also dissuaded the city of a notion, first put forth by McGinn during a Feb. 27 news briefing, that the city’s agreement with the DOJ — signed in July — settled the litigation between them.
McGinn’s legal counsel, Carl Marquardt, repeated the assertion in a March 5 letter to Holmes, saying “implementation of the Settlement Agreement is not ‘litigation.’ ”
He said the agreement makes clear that it is an accord between the city and DOJ to avoid litigation. Marquardt asserted that implementation “falls squarely” within the mayor’s authority.
That view is “simply wrong,” Robart said.

* Be nicer to people threatening you with carving knives and guns. Accept any officer injury in the line of duty as SPD's fault.
* Ignore any minority who is breaking the law. Particularly the loudest and most obnoxious minorities with their own associations.
* Focus more on rich white people going to work. Give SPD taxing authority.
* When the NAACP yells "Racist," just drop your head and say "Yessa Massa. Yessa."
On the topic, if there is already a pending case in federal court opening a new trial in state court is a dumb move. I think Federal pre-emption is a slam dunk here.
Hillary Clinton is Joe Paterno
Sneaky Pete Holmes for mayor!!!!
