TO CONFER WITH COUNSEL REGARDING POTENTIAL INITIATION OF LITIGATION

V. ADJOURNMENT

The only thing I am not sure of by reading this is, is LACERS initiating the litigation over investments, or is someone else, like the SEC and/or Federal Government initiating the litigation on LACERS?  After all, Villaraigosa's LACER commission appointees DID manage to lose over -20% of the fund in a two year period. (It was supposed to be an 8% gain, each year.) It all adds up to billions, and it has to be covered out of L.A. City's general fund, which is why we are having all of these budget crisis meetings at City Hall, now. And it has been discovered that many of Villar's cronies, backers and appointees have been taken down by Andrew Cuomo over pension fraud. And I'm sure a lot of those people who got busted and who took deals to prevent from going to jail, have a lot to add to my own blogging on the matter. So it wouldn't surprise me if this litigation was because LACERS is the one getting litigated against. (But I'm still not sure. Any clarifications?)
