Councilman Sam Allevato has repeatedly claimed that the current City Council majority is "responsible for eleven lawsuits" totaling "millions of dollars".

We decided to do some fact checking to see when lawsuits against the City were filed amounting to more than $10,000, and how much the City taxpayers paid to defend and/or settle each case*.

We submitted a Public Records request for information dating back to 2013, the year prior to the election of the present council majority. The results are listed under "SJC Legal Fees 2013 - present" to the right, under Community Links.
