Unstoppably Mayoral-Like Force (Michael Pizzi) to Meet Immovably Concrete-Like Appellate Object (Bunker)!
It's on peoples:
The next chapter in the Miami Lakes mayoral battle will happen Wednesday as lawyers for Michael Pizzi, Wayne Slaton and the town head to the Third District Court of Appeal.
The hearing is the result of an appeal filed by lawyers representing the town and Slaton regarding Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Gisela Cardonne Ely’s March 31 decision to allow Michael Pizzi to return to the mayoral seat, following a 30-day stay.
Ely denied a request made by the town and Slaton on Thursday to extend the stay until the appellate court makes a ruling.
Miami Lakes Attorney Raul Gastesi plans on filing a motion to extend the stay with the appellate court. He said that Ely instructed in court that it would be appropriate for the appellate court to make that call.
On Tuesday night, the town council addressed the issue of legal fees associated with this battle, voting 5-1 to approve spending an additional $111,051.19 in town funds to pay the Akerman law firm to represent Slaton.One hundred and eleven thousand to Akerman I understand -- that buys you some research and partial parking validation downtown.
Ok throw in the 51 bucks.
But nineteen cents?
Offer to write that off -- clients like that meaningless crap.
