General counsel lawsuit dropped
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A local judge has dismissed a lawsuit against the city of Jacksonville over the appointment of the city's general counsel.
The group, Concerned Taxpayers of Duval County, wanted Cindy Laquidara to prove she was properly appointed and confirmed under the city charter.
Previously, the Mayor's office said Laquidara had already addressed her appointment in a legal opinion.
