MONTOYA AND SOSSI SETTLE - AFTER FEDERAL MAGISTRATE JUDGE ORDERS THE COB AND SOSSI TO JUSTIFY REMOVING THE CASE TO FEDERAL COURT

As the below from the Motion for Extension of Time filed by the COB at taxpayers' expense shows, rather than defend the decision to remove the case to federal court the COB and Sossi have settled with someone getting money.

The document does not say who gets the money or how much, but since Montoya has no money I do not see Montoya paying Sossi or the COB.  The city commission will not do its job and investigate. Further, if the city has to pay out a penny, the city commission should immediately fire Mark Sossi. Do not fret Mark my boy, you have the most inept city commission in history watching your back.

How much will the COB pay lawyers to keep the terms of the settlement agreement secret?  You can bet a lot.  Taxpayer money has been expended - we have a right to know - oh no we don't - Texas AG Paxton has suspended the Open Records Act.

FROM THE COB'S MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME

"The reason for this request is that the Parties in the case have been engaged in settlement discussions, the terms of which have been agreed upon, and which has not yet been completed. One of the terms of the settlement agreement is that the claims and causes of action by and between the Parties in this case will be dismissed with prejudice upon payment of the specified sums. However, the documentation of the settlement agreement is in circulation between the Parties and has not yet been completed. It is not going to be possible to have the settlement paperwork completed by the briefing deadline set by the Court in its Order dated May 5, 2016, which falls today, May 12,2 016. See Doc. #4 Order dated May 6, 2016.

However, the Parties anticipate that the circulation and execution of the settlement documents can be completed by the end of this week, and that an appropriate motion and order to dismiss the case can be filed upon delivery of the settlement proceeds, which should be completed by the middle of next week."

Sossi has already spent a pretty penny of the City's money without following the rules. You have shown us that many lawyers are total scum. What can be done by the Bar to address this behavior? Thank you.

The State Bar is the largest criminal enterprise in the State of Texas. Sossi is considered protected - no amount of evidence concerning unethical conduct will move the State Bar to take action.
