Council demurs on hiring outside law firm

Deciding that $484 per case is a bit much for erasing the arrest record for those caught in the K-Mart Kiddie Roundup, the City Council has decided to wait and consider other options.

Councilman Gordon Quan said he did not think the city needed to hire lawyers to handle such cases, saying it could be done more efficiently.

"Two attorneys and a legal assistant who knows how to use a word processor can erase these records. It's pretty perfunctory," Quan said.
