4:32 pm
this is a slightly unusual twist on that. when you investigate something like this, what are you looking for? criminal liability? what is the potential? >> our city attorney's office, we are on the civil side. you mention what has happened in the past with patient dumping. years ago, our office had to file a lawsuit over -- against the state of nevada for busing patients to san francisco. they were literally sending patients to us with one way bus tickets. we had to sue, we settled for close to half $1 million. while we are just digging into this and starting to learn the facts, there are issues that seem similar to that nevada patient dumping. >> and of course it is a -- case but from that perspective, what might you do? what could possible outcomes be?
4:33 pm
>> from my perspective, the most important thing is to make sure the city has a policy in place that makes it clear to all its officers that this is not acceptable. not an acceptable action on the part of law enforcement. in addition, we had to spend resources as a city when it came to first responders who showed up on the scene and apparently this individual might have set a fire, so there were fire personnel and others. in the nevada case i referenced, we sued in part under the common law of misappropriation of funds, which is the idea that one jurisdiction is literally misappropriating the taxpayer dollars of another. it looks like that might have happened. >> there is no way to get into the mindset of what happened specifically, but if -- is there a circumstance where that person could have just told the off -- told the officer that was where
4:34 pm
he wanted to be dropped off? is there legitimate reason to do that? >> possibly. but in this instance, it was clear that this individual didn't seem to have a particular destination in mind. what we have heard from various news reports has frankly changed over the last couple of days. they initially suggested this individual had requested to be dropped in san francisco but we have also heard news reports in which san rafael is saying it was an officer that had suggested that to the individual. we still have not heard exactly what has happened from san rafael themselves. we have requested information and are still waiting. >> interesting. >> this is the job we have. >> thank you for coming gone. >> thanks for having me. >> to the latest on an investigation, a travel book are
