Legal Costs

Andrew Binion tells the story of the city’s legal battle with one of its former planners, Kenneth Lassiter.

The story began when police responded to a 911 call.

A neighbor held the telephone up in the air so even the 911 dispatcher on the other end heard some of the man’s words — in particular, those that sounded like threats to cut a woman’s throat with a knife.

Lassiter took the city to court over how its cops and legal department treated him that night, but the ongoing fight is about so much more.
