Animal Defense League to Hold Lawsuit...For Now.

The Los Angeles chapter of the Animal Defense League (ADL-LA) has announced that they will not file suit against the City of Los Angeles alleging improper hiring practices concerning the city's search for a new General Manager for the City's Department of Animal Control.

From the announcement:

The plaintiffs were going to file the complaint (law suit) through their attorney, along with their exhibits and declarations today April 26th, 2010. But the plaintiff's have decided to wait until the Mayor NOMINATES the new General Manager. Because if for some reason our sources were misinformed and Villaraigosa nominates a general manager that Councilmember Zine and many well respected individuals from within the humane community suggested to the LAAS commission and Jim Bickhart as the kind of General Manager LAAS needs; one who is progressive, humane and knows what protocols, policies and programs to implement that will drastically reduce the kill rate and dramatically increase the adoption rate, the plaintiffs will be left with "Egg on their faces!"
