Late this month, a Montclair contracting business filed a lawsuit against the City of Irvine and it's Orange County Great Park Corp. in hopes of collecting $361,000 after creating a "shade structure" for the park's dubious balloon ride PR scheme.
According to lawyers for Landmark Fence Co., Great Park officials have refused to pay the bills for contracted work completed in early September.
Though city and park officials have not filed an official reply, the case has been assigned to Orange County Superior Court Judge Linda S. Marks.
City councilman Larry Agran, the career politician who runs Irvine and thus its Great Park operation, has been under scrutiny for numerous questionable financial deals concerning OC's largest ongoing public works project at an estimated $1.6 billion.
R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. Corporate crooks won’t take his calls. Murderous gangsters mad-dogged him in court. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Pusillanimous cops have left hostile messages using fake names. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. And a frantic state legislator literally caught sleeping with lobbyists sprinted down state capital hallways to evade his questions in Sacramento. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club and been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists.
