Attorneys maintain a full caseload and are responsible for continuing the investigation of the allegations asserted against the City and individual City employees, as well handling all aspects of the pretrial and trial litigation of those matters when necessary.
 
The majority of the matters handled in Litigation are in the defense of the City. New litigation is analyzed, assessed for damage exposure, assigned for defense and monitored throughout the litigation process.  One of the Group's priorities is to use lessons learned from litigation against the City to educate City departments, agencies and employees on what actions create liability for the City and on how to minimize liability exposure in the future.
