Tuesday’s release of the Deposition of Colleen Clark by Great Park forensic auditors was about as expected:  more solid evidence of shoddy work, over-payment, and dictatorial control by Larry Agran.  CFO Clark also tells of trying to get the billing reduced for some particularly shoddy feasibility reports from The Design Studio.

Q And what was Mr. Cooper’s role with the city?

A  He was the Manager of Operations for the Great Park

[ one page redacted]

Q What did you do after that?  Did you take any steps to seek other employment?

A  I did.

A lot could be in those redacted sections. The remaining unredacted comments may not actually be related.  But….
