Furthermore, the contract was drafted in a way that would avoid any such conflict, Garcia said.

ROSEMEAD – The Rosemead City Council on Tuesday approved a contract for an attorney whose firm also represents a school district suing the city. Bonifacio “Bonny” Garcia of Los Angeles-based firm Garcia, Calderon and Ruiz, was hired April 3, after longtime city attorney Peter Wallin resigned. Garcia has been working without a contract since then. Councilman John Nu ez recommended that Garcia, who has been a lawyer for more than 25 years, serve as city attorney. The council did not consider any other attorneys. “He is very good at telling people when you are wrong, and he is fair,” Nu ez said Wednesday. Nu ez said he also appreciates the ethnic diversity at the firm. Nu ez said he encouraged Garcia to apply for the position. The same day that Garcia’s appointment was approved, 3-2, he sat in a closed session meeting that discussed anticipated litigation against Nu ez for an alleged sexual harassment claim, although a separate attorney has been assigned since then to handle that lawsuit. While some staff members and residents previously expressed surprise at the council’s decision not to take the contract out to bid, others said they wondered whether the firm’s representation of the Garvey School District, which is suing the city over the construction of Wal-Mart, was a conflict of interest. Though the law firm is the general counsel to the district, none of its attorneys has ever represented the district or have privileged information regarding the existing lawsuit, according to the contract.
