Delgadillo throws down with Council

City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, through chief deputy Rich Llewellyn, has asked the City Council to waive its attorney-client privilege and divulge what it was told about the hazing case involving firefighter Tennie Pierce. In a letter to the Council, Llewellyn says he has been "disappointed" by the public statements made by some members about the evidence they saw. I'm presuming he means the claims by Council members that they approved a $2.7 million settlement before learning of photos that show a jocular Pierce engaged in hazing at fire stations. Llewellyn says he can't waive confidentiality, but the Council can "to set the record straight." Point to Rocky, serve goes over to Garcetti and friends.
