Settlement in Shoreline case

The long-awaited (by me, at least) trial over Shoreline Amphitheatre may not happen at all, after weekend settlement talks brought the city and concert promoter Live Nation close to resolving the case.

Judge Randall Schneider announced Monday morning he would delay the trial until May 15 in order to give the sides more time to rewrite their lease agreement. Schneider, who had just emerged from a meeting with the lawyers on each side, said the parties had reached an agreement on the contentious issue of past rent.

i hate it when people's ego or greed get in the way of productivity.

Okay, let's see...you lied, cheated, manipulated, bullied and defrauded our city's citizens of millions of dollars. Can we kiss and make up now?

I'd kiss and make-up with a lot of people for the amount of money the city is probably going to get out of this.

I asked the city manager why there was no mention of it in the budget. He said they'd decide what to do with the money once it came in.

Maybe they can budget some in for hiring you as that city PR position Clear Channel was talking about. Just kidding, nemesis.

I dare you to list all the people you'd kiss and make up with for that amount of money

Shouldn't our City get 100% of the money it's owed plus payment for all the time spent by City Staff to get UnClearChannel to do what they ought to have done in the first place?

Am I missing something here?
