On November 21, the State Auditor answered the CJP lawsuit to block access to the CJP's records. The Answer, filed by the firm of Myron Moskovitz of Piedmont, CA, on behalf of the State Auditor demonstrates the meritless nature of the lawsuit.
Mr. Moskovitz was quoted in a recent Daily Journal article:
"After they see the answer, if they still want to go to trial we will. I don't know why they would want to. I don't think they have much of a case ... This is the first time anyone has ever complained about their right to audit a public agency that gets public money and is supposed to serve the public. I don't know what they're afraid of."
Kudos to the State Auditor and Mr. Moskovitz's firm for making a firm stand against the unprecedented and unconscionable lawsuit.
