Re: “A Disaster Waiting to Happen


Despite the City's issuance of the Abatement Order, requiring that the bankruptcy trustee do all of the work which the Oakland Fire Department deems necessary to keep the Oak Knoll property from setting off "Oakland Firestorm II":

On 10/8/09 both the bankruptcy trustee, Steven Speier of Newport Beach, California and the mortgage lender on the property Lehman ALI, Inc. filed documents with the bankruptcy court in the SunCal Oak Knoll, LLC case essentially telling the City of Oakland and its Fire Department to "F Off".

One can imagine what would happen to an ordinary Oakland resident said that to the City. Jail time?
