Cambridge Chronicle Reports Cambridge spent over $12 million on Monteiro case

The Cambridge Chronicle is reporting at, details finally revealed by the City of Cambridge in response to their freedom on information demand.

The check to Monteiro herself was $8.3 million (more accurate than Chronicle report). The check to Cambridge’s attorneys is $2.5 million. Interest payments ran to $1 million.

Cambridge is still refusing to reveal details about payments to the final two plaintiffs.

The Chronicle has major problems with Cambridge’s legal interpretation of their duty to disclose.

Monteiro v. Cambridge is the case that went to the Appeals Court concerning the Cambridge City Manager’s firing of a female department head in retaliation for her filing a civil rights complaint.

The Appeals Court refused to dignify the Cambridge appeal with a formal opinion. They spoke of “ample evidence [of] outrageous actions.”

The Superior Court judge called Cambridge’s behavior “reprehensible.”

The jury said $1.1 million real damages, $3.5 million penal damages.

The Cambridge Pols cannot understand why the Cambridge City Manager should be fired. All he did was destroy a woman’s life in retaliation for her filing a civil rights complaint.

MSPCA does not have the facility to take on geese, so why are they even considering it? plus adopting geese wild geese is so wrong for the geese.

Equivalent to nine city councilor calling themselves environmental saints at the same time as killing hundreds or thousand of free animals at Alewife for "flood storage" that cannot be provided by their project but can be provided across the street.

When they are trying to destroy, all they have to do is get away with it once. And the machine pops out nonsense after nonsense after nonsense, knowing they only have to get people to sucker after one item.

One successful con and they have done their destruction. Just look at Alewife. That was accomplished by one fake group telling people it was defending Alewife, and then telling well intended folks to look at everything but what their friends at Cambridge and the DCR were totally irresponsibly destroying.

And the machine backs up each of the fake groups, giving a massive number of probably fooled people fighting to destroy what they want to save.
