City spends to get cash back

The city’s laying out cash for private lawyers to try to get back $4.7 million paid to a couple of engineering firms on a basis later determined to be fraudulent. This brief item suggests the city knows it’s a lot to pay but that it’s a matter of principle. (I also learned a French word I hadn’t yet encountered but which could’ve been used more often during the Tremblay era – dolosif.)
