As expected Mr. Danielson has selected a well qualified and totally independent person to conduct this investigation.

This is a very tough problem since I suspect that those who have lodged complaints will never been satisfied unless some finding of misconduct has been made. Perhaps reasonably so, certainly at least from their perspective. I therefore hope that Mr. Danielson will instruct David Reuben to not only come up with a conduct finding, but also detail how the APD can handle things more professionally going forward no matter what that finding may be.

Those rates are very reasonable. By today's standards the sound out of Dashiell Hammett/Sam Spade days.
Let's hope everyone is happy though it is doubtful.

Happy this time. In Atherton? I doubt it especially with the individual involved. But, perhaps this investigation will get to the bottom of the complaint and Atherton can move on.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
