We are filing this complaint because the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, defrauded us out of a contract valued at $***,***.** and restrained us from participating in technology advisory contracts worth ** million dollars. We have reason to believe these contracts are being allocated to LADWP’s preferred vendors and LADWP is denying us contracts in retaliation for the protest and protest appeals that were filed but denied and never heard. LADWP denied the protest, and prevented the protest appeal from being heard. We filed a lawsuit but LADWP’s attorney filed an Anti-SLAPP motion which prevented discovery. The City’s motion contained the buyer’s declaration, John De La Rosa’s, which was false, misleading, and contained manufactured evidence and false information. The City’s motion was based on De La Rosa’s declaration and the false evidence contained in the scoresheets. We discovered the scoresheets were modified by the City Attorney, Dirk P. Broersma and they contain false, misleading, and fraudulent information, and the attorney knows the information is false because he modified the scoresheets. Our attorney believed the City’s attorney and withdrew, consequently, our case was dismissed. The City’s SLAPP motion was granted by Judge Richard Rico and to add insult to injury, we now owe LADWP $*,***.**. * *We are being denied the constitutional right to equal and fair treatment under the law and an equal and fair opportunity to work for the City because of fraud, bid rigging, unethical and unlawful conduct at LADWP. LADWP’s California Public Records Act (CPRA) processes, the correspondences and vendor communication methods and business practices are unlawful and patently corrupt. These devices are used to manipulate, delay, stall or deny due process and permit LADWP to circumvent the laws, avoid discovery, ignore requests for records and continue deceptive business practices. The delay tactics are employed to prevent protests, appeals and exhaust the statute of limitations (SOL). The rebid process is corruptly used to avoid protest appeal hearings and prevent lawful redress or judicial intervention. LADWP manufactures false and misleading evidence to deceive bidding firms, law enforcement authorities, state investigators and the court. Meanwhile, ratepayers’ costs are increasing, the infrastructure is antiquated, unstable and unsecure. Major projects (like the new billing system) result in failure* bonds are issued increasing debt and rates* the City is over-leveraged and nothing is done about the waste, fraud and abuse resulting from the City’s anticompetitive conduct.* *LADWP abuses its position of trust and status as a department of the local government* it uses its circle of influence to advance a corrupt agenda and authority to violate the law and our civil rights. We allege, individuals in LADWP have abused its privilege, violated public trust and perpetrated a fraud on the court which constitutes conduct that demands accountability. The deception, lies and illegal maneuvers we have experienced at LADWP resemble the actions of an organized crime syndicate, criminal cartels and racketeers operating with corrupt intent, as opposed to law abiding public servants. The evidence in this declaration leaves no doubt that Maverick was never going to win a contract at LADWP because of unlawful trade restraints, and without an investigation, law enforcement and judicial intervention, this behavior will never change! Thousands of dollars and thousands of man hours have been wasted bidding for contracts, filing protests and protest appeals, only to learn LADWP’s procurement process is rigged. In reality, Maverick never had a fair chance to win a contract and can no longer participate in this anticompetitive environment. * *We are in desperate need of an investigation by law enforcement authorities that will not turn a blind eye to public corruption, antitrust violations, fraud and anticompetitive conduct. LADWP uses its extensive network and influence to circumvent the law. There can be no free trade as long as LADWP is permitted to erect unreasonable, unlawful trade restraints, and their attorneys are willing to manufacture or tamper with evidence and commit fraud on the court with impunity. Your intervention will help save our company. Please review the incontrovertible evidence contained in this email and let me know if you have any further questions. * *Marvin G. Brown MBA**** *** ***** *We are seeking Maverick Consulting Group's and Los Angeles LDC's (a separate entity) scores spreadsheet with the actual scores from LADWP on RFP *****. LADWP has have refused to produce the documents after several CPRA request. We can not obtain all the fact necessary to prove our case until we get these documents.**We are seeking Los Angeles LDC's (a separate entity) Proposals from RFP ***** from LADWP.**We would like Judge Richard Rico to review my declaration so that he will know a fraud was perpetrated on the Court.**We would like a recommendation for an Antitrust attorney and we would like an investigation into this matter. White collar crimes are being committed on us, forcing my company out of business and I can't get the law enforcement authorities to do anything. We need the legal system to work for justice.
