January 2006: OUR
FIRST WIN IN COURT!
Judge Weiner issued a 21-page DRUBBING to the Town Council for their flawed decision, which was the basis of our lawsuit. The Judge analyzed their legal and logical contortions to accommodate Jobs. "Such findings simply demonstrate the Town Council's exaggerated efforts to find a means to the end that Jobs seeks."
The Judge reiterated that under law if feasible alternatives to demolition exist such as relocation, or selling the property at a huge profit, or donating it as a philanthropic tax write-off, those alternatives must be exhausted before demolition can be considered. The ruling was scathing as to the lack of transparency under which Jobs has been allowed to consider and reject bids to save the house.
