Yeah James Williams Esq. ! Another Big Win for that County lawyer! Glad he is 'on my side'.

His biggest 'money win' (in the Billions) was defending (CA Supermes) the Brown-era law eliminating RDAs across the entire state! (2011) "There was no consensus among municipalities regarding the propriety of eliminating RDAs. At the November 10, 2011, oral argument, Santa Clara County Deputy County Counsel James R. Williams argued that the law clearly permitted the elimination of RDAs. Mr. Williams’ employer, the County of Santa Clara, had seen more than $90 million in annual tax revenues diverted from the County’s municipal coffers to RDAs located within the County’s borders, and opposed the ongoing diversion of funds."
