Obviously someone did. A high-ranking county official. The jurors said they lacked credibility as they contradicted one another. In Devereaux’s case, that is grounds for termination. Where’s the BOS? I thought the BOS stood for truth, justice and the American way . . . and, oh yeah, transparency. So where is the outrage? The investigation? The termination? Oops, I forgot. It’s San Bernardino County, California’s most corrupt county. It’s business as usual. Our leaders don’t know any other way than to be corrupt.
Update: Trying to learn about this case is a real pain with the new and improved court records system. As soon as I can I will go to the courthouse and pull the file.
I have learned a few new things, a couple of which I cannot write about yet. It is clear that Devereaux intentionally committed perjury. Remember his testimony came on the heels of the Lamberto fiasco. I’m guessing Dev didn’t want the BOS to know he broke the law so soon after the Lamberto issue. Henry narc’ed him off. I guess Devereaux’s testimony lacked common sense. There are some other things admitted during testimony our unions really got to know about. We’ve talked about them on the blog for years. Now there is proof.
The $704,000 judgment does not include attorneys fees. Those fees will be close to $1 million.
