Title
Resolution authorizing the Office of the City Attorney to resolve various Milwaukee Municipal Court cases, either through permanent stay of the forfeiture or dismissal. (City Attorney)
Analysis
This resolution disposes of open warrants, commitments, arrest warrants and bench warrants which have had an absence of any activity for over a 7 year period and making it unlikely that the City can enforce these writs.
Body
Whereas, The City of Milwaukee has obtained judgment in a number of Milwaukee Municipal Court cases, as identified by case number, defendant's name, offense and amount of judgment in Appendix A attached to Common Council File Number 020759 and incorporated herein by reference; and

Whereas, The City of Milwaukee, through the Office of the City Attorney, has been unable to enforce collection of said judgments and recommends no further action at this time; and

Whereas, The City of Milwaukee has, in addition, a number of other pending Milwaukee Municipal Court cases, as identified by case number, defendant's name, and offense in Appendix B, incorporated herein by reference, wherein no judgments have been obtained and warrants have been issued for said defendants; and

Whereas, With respect to such cases listed in Appendix B, the Office of the City Attorney recommends no further prosecution; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the Office of the City Attorney, be and hereby is authorized to move the Milwaukee Municipal Court to permanently stay the forfeiture portion of the judgments in all of those cases listed in Appendix A; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Office of the City Attorney be and hereby is further authorized to move the Milwaukee Municipal Court to dismiss all of those cases listed in Appendix B.
