Alameda Journal: SunCal attorney says Alameda could face lawsuit


The investigation into whether City Councilwoman Lena Tam leaked confidential information was a blatant attempt by Interim City Manager Ann Marie Gallant to stop SunCal Companies as a possible developer for Alameda Point, a lawyer for the company says.

SunCal's exclusive negotiation agreement with the city will expire Tuesday unless the council votes to extend it.

Gallant and Tam have been frequent political opponents, including over SunCal: Gallant has criticized the company's effort, while Tam has supported it.
