Rhino Times attorney Seth Cohen to the City of Greensboro

….we received a copy of an opinion letter by the law firm of Conner Gwyn Schenck, PLLC, dated May 18, 2007. Based upon this letter… it has become more apparent that the City has, in fact, violated Article I, Section 32 of the North Carolina Constitution.

The purpose of this letter is to provide the City and Mr. Johnson the opportunity to take whatever action is necessary to replenish the public fisc without taxpayer funds of the $35,006 which was improperly paid to UMG. See Peacock v . Shinn, 139 N.C. App. 487, 491, 533 S.E.2d 842, 845-46 (2000). (City must be given the opportunity to recover taxpayer funds before institution of lawsuit by taxpayers). Unless such action is taken, Mr. Hammer intend (sic) to proceed with litigation. (bold emphasis added)
