Settlement proposed for lobbying lawsuit against former supervisor 

City Attorney Dennis Herrera announced Thursday a proposed $75,000 settlement with a former Board of Supervisors member whom he had sued for allegedly violating the city’s lobbying law.

The agreement with former Supervisor Michael Yaki must be approved by the Ethics Commission before it becomes final. The pact provides that Yaki does not admit to any liability for the allegations in a lawsuit Herrera filed in December.

The lawsuit alleged that Yaki, who now works as a lawyer and political consultant, “flouted the lobbyist ordinance in every way” when he contacted city officials on behalf of a firefighting equipment company during a revision of The City’s fire code in 2012 and 2013.

Under the pact, Yaki will pay $75,000 to The City over nine years, register as a lobbyist, file required monthly disclosures and complete an Ethics Commission lobbyist training session.
