The courthouse grand jury met and took testimony from 4 city officials today. Most notably, the first two witnesses were the City’s top two legal advisors – Rick Mullaney and Cindy Laquidara. Adam Hollingsworth and Alan Mosley also testified. At issue are the findings in an audit that $64 million dollars were spent with nothing to show for it other than designs that won’t be used and defective contracts. Read more here.

The grand jury investigation continues into the City’s expenditure of $65 million dollars on the proposed Courthouse – with nothing to show for it. Next on deck to testify: John Delaney, Adam Hollingsworth, and Alan Mosley.
I noticed that in today’s TU article, the City’s General Counsel, Rick Mullaney, couldn’t resist taking a back-handed dig at outgoing State Attorney Harry Shorstein. I guess he couldn’t think of anything constructive to say since his office is being scrutinized in the ongoing investigation for their role in the City’s defective courthouse contracts.
