State of California FPPC Issues 'No Violation' Letter

On July 23, the State of California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) issued a “No Violation” Letter to John Sandbrook, interim General Manager and Chief Administrative Officer of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission.  Mr. Sandbrook had been earlier notified by the FPPC in May 2012 that an anonymous allegation had been received by the FPPC about Mr. Sandbrook, in his capacity as interim General Manager and Chief Administrative Officer of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, a public agency.

 In the letter, the FPPC states its conclusion: “Based on our investigation, the allegations appear to have been unsupported.  Accordingly, we are closing our file on this matter.”

Coliseum Commission Response To Allegations of Brown Act Violations


The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission received letters during the month of June 2012 from legal representatives of (a) the Los Angeles Times; and (b) Californians Aware, a 501(c)(3) organization based in Carmichael, California.  The letters allege that the Coliseum Commission violated provisions of the Ralph Brown Act, the state law governing the conduct of meetings for certain categories of public agencies in the State of California.

 On July 3, the Commission responded to both letters, asserting that the allegations are incorrect and not substantiated by actual facts.  The Commission believes that all of its actions with respect to the Amended and Restated USC Lease Agreement have been properly considered in public session, in accordance with the Brown Act, as supported by the actual facts set forth in the response.

 A copy of the response issued by Thomas J. Faughnan, Assistant County Counsel for the County of Los Angeles, on behalf of the Coliseum Commission can be found by clicking HERE.
