Another Sad Case of MUNI Fraud – And Yet, Does the SFMTA Give Tickets to Cable Car Drivers Who Steal $6 Fares? NoWednesday, November 14th, 2012
This is the face of MUNI Fraud.
North Face Girl didn’t pay her $2 fare, looks like.
So a crew of three SFMTA Inspectors had to take her down, for tout le monde to see.

But what happens when a cable car driver steals a six dollar fare, like something that happens all the time every day?
Do MUNI Inspectors ever hand out citations for that?
I don’t know.

There’s a lot of history in this photo. Do you see the trend – taller and less ornate until, whoops we went too far…
You know who should write about this kind of stuff? John King. Get him a camera like this or something.

Hey Lawyers, Here’s a Gig for You! Get Paid Six Figures to Represent Indebted California Culinary Academy GradsWednesday, June 13th, 2012
Hey, remember Amador v. California Culnary Academy?
Well they’re still doling out the cash on this one, so why not get some of it?
Now I’ll tell you, the only worser idea than going to law school these days (ooh, that link is a bit much, non?) is going to cooking school, am I right, GF? So why not use your JD to help the poor souls who were misled by the California Culinary Academy?
It’s a win-win, baby! Get all the deets below.
Sure, cooking school can be sexy, but does it pay off?
This job is new, this job is you, Counselor:
“Senior Counsel and Director of Legal Aid Firm (downtown / civic / van ness)
This is an opportunity to found a legal aid organization. In Amador v. California Culnary Academy, students alleged they were led to believe the $46,000 12-month culinary education they received would make economic sense based on their post-graduation job opportunities. For most students that proved untrue.
In connection with the $41.8 million class action settlement of the case (judgement is expected to become final later this month), $2 million has been earmarked to provide student-debt-related services to class members. These class members need help dealing with their creditors. The director will set up and manage the firm under the oversight of the trustees of the fund, Ray E. Gallo and Robert W. Mills. The objective is to effectively manage and compromise the class members’ debts by all legal means. Also, through other fundraising efforts, we hope this new firm may live beyond its $2 million founding budget to become the first agency to focus on providing remedies to the economically disadvantaged when they suffer consumer-related tragedies like those at issue in Amador.
The ideal applicant is an attorney with 10 or more years of experience who enjoys being in a courtroom and has significant experience supervising other lawyers and staff members. Big firm training and top 10 schooling are preferred, but anybody smart and scrappy is welcome to apply. This will be a small firm environment, and effective use of technology will be essential, so you should be someone who welcomes those things.
The job may be available as early as July 1, 2012 and requires a commitment of at least two years. The location of the firm will be determined in consultation with the Director once hired.
Please submit cover letter, resume, writing sample, and salary history by email. Potentially qualified candidates will be asked to complete online assessments.
- Compensation: $100,000 to $200,000 (negotiable, DOE, etc.)
- This is at a non-profit organization.
- OK to highlight this job opening for persons with disabilities
- Principals only. Recruiters, please don’t contact this job poster.
- Please, no phone calls about this job!
- Please do not contact job poster about other services, products or commercial interests.”
Do You Know These Three Girls Who Hang Out on Polk Street? One of them Stole a Cell Phone and Wallet at a Subway SandwichWednesday, March 28th, 2012
Here’s the sad story from the dude what lost his stuff at the Subway Sandwiches on Polk and Sutter:
“(3/25/2012) I was in the Subway sandwiches place at 1199 Sutter at Polk and then walked outside to get a taxi for some people I was with. I had accidentally left my phone and wallet on the table. When I returned about 30 seconds later my stuff was gone. Here is the surveillance video of who took it. Please message me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you recognize her.”
Now, I say girls, I mean, I can’t tell how old they are, something betwixt 14 and 24. They act like high school students AFAIAC.
