I report potentially positive progress! As I have previously noted, we have been engaged in pre-filing discussions with both the City and County. Copies of our complaint have been provided to them. Both have asked us to extend our filing deadline until they have had a chance to consult with their respective clients (City Council and Board of Supervisors). The Steering Committee conferred this afternoon and decided to postpone the filing for three weeks; with people on the street confronting dire circumstances, it behooves us to explore an early settlement that avoids protracted litigation. We are seeking beds on an expedited basis – the sooner the better.
I will advise of the case status as it evolves. Thank you again for your support.
