Current Status:  12/1/05 LMUD requires an additional 14 days to comply and requires "prepayment" again. 

12/15/05: Payment was made. Bill Stewart stated that the documents were completed.

12/16/05: No documents were received. Richey has no intention of complying with the Public Records Act. Richey is under no direct supervision or control of the public utility.

DATE: November 16, 2005 LMUD DUE: 11/26/05  COST:$207.75 

Copy of the Request    LMUD Response #1   Response to LMUD

Current Status:  LMUD delays request and  requires a prepayment of documents before documents will be released.  Request for payment was sent on 11/23/05. Payment could not be made due to the Thanksgiving holiday. LMUD offices were closed 11/24 and 11/25. Payment was made on 11/28/05. The documents were due on 11/26/05. 

11/29/05: LMUD Staff refuses to release documents. Richey decides to hold the documents after payment is made on 11/28/05 and told LMUD staff that she will not release them until the postage is paid ($7.25).  A specific request to pick the documents up was made on 11/28/05. President Cardenas is told that the documents have been mailed. 

12/1/05: Received documents through 12/1/05. Richey back dated the postage again to attempt to make it appear as though she had mailed the documents on 11/22/05. A childish act that seems to be her trademark.

DATE: October 13, 2005  LMUD DUE: 10/23/05  COST: $29.50

Copy of Request    LMUD RESPONSE  LMUD RESPONSE #2   Cady's Response

Current Status: 10/20/05- LMUD requests an additional 14 days to determine whether or not they will comply with the law, promised on 11/2/05

Non-compliance 11/4/05: LMUD failed to include legal invoices and supporting documentation. LMUD legal counsel (Frank Cady) determined three years ago that these were disclosable public documents. In order to hide Jaimee Richey's unverifiable legal fees LMUD's General Manager and Richey's law partner,  intends to withhold all legal invoices. LMUD has no litigation, pending or otherwise. If they had litigation, the Board is obligated to reveal such litigation.  LMUD's legal fees are primarily redundant legislative research and  the tasks (attorney/client privileged entries) are always fully redacted. 

This is a blatant violation of the Public Records Act.   

Cady and Richey would lose in court...guaranteed (past practice waived any right to refuse to disclose the time and task of their invoices) Cady and Richey know that only "litigation" time and task detail can be withheld.....LMUD does not have any litigation through Richey. She is a "legal aid" to Frank Cady......

Jaimee Richey is LMUD's General Manager's law partner. Both Frank Cady and Jaimee Richey lied to obtain public contracts and to intend to continue to withhold their unverifiable legal invoices. These invoices are disclosable public documents.  Cady's Response

LMUD is required to file the Third Quarter State & Federal Payroll reports by October 31. The public records were sent on November 2, 2005. LMUD requested an additional 14 days in order to comply and then failed to include the Third Quarter payroll reports.


DATE: October 4, 2005  LMUD DUE: 10/14/05  COST: $51.00



Current Status: 10/7/05, LMUD requests an additional 14 days: 10/28/05

This PRA requests included a copy of Resolution 2001-03. This document stated that LMUD General Manager must comply with CPUC 14403.3 (requirements for the General Manager's Report). This document was released on 10/20/05, one day after the Public Hearing. 

Documents received on 10/20/05- LMUD now states that they intend to withhold all legal supporting documents for all law firms, just to hide Jaimee Richey's over billing and undocumentable legal fees.   

Jaimee Richey (LMUD legal counsel) and Frank Cady (LMUD General Manager) lied to obtain public contracts. Jaimee Richey and Frank Cady are partners in Cady,vPardee & Richey LLP. 

Frank Cady began withholding his invoices when the Arrowrock legal fees invoices were being requested. All other legal invoices including supporting documentation have been released with no "privilege" being exercised. LMUD gave up their right of privilege after releasing three years of legal invoices (with supporting documentation)

Public Records Act, Section 6257.5 states that, "This chapter does not allow limitations on access to a public record based upon the purpose for which the record is being requested, if the record is otherwise subject to disclosure."

                            10/12/05, LMUD paid Richey, July & August 2005, without requiring any documentation for her legal fees. All other law firms have submitted proper invoices detailing the time spent and the task. Richey is still partners with Frank Cady. (Gross Conflict of Interest, and the LMUD Board doesn't care)

Current Status: LMUD requests an additional 14 days. 


LMUD does not have a contract with Cohn & Whitesell LLP. Frank Cady submitted a phony document  link   to the LMUD Board from the law firm of Cohn & Whitesell LLP. No payments have been made to Cohn & Whitesell for work on the "alleged" Enron claim. 

Frank Cady paid Cohn, Khoury Madoff and Whitesell through his invoice to LMUD. In January & February, of 2003, Frank Cady invoiced LMUD $4537.47 for work that Cohn Khoury Madoff and Whitesell did. LMUD now claims that they never paid this law firm. This was a time that Frank Cady hid expenses in his invoices so they would not be traceable by the public. 

LMUD refuses to disclose administration costs for the Public Benefits program. 

LMUD refuses to disclose month by month annual revenue for 2002, 2003 and 2004. (Received by filing a new request)

LMUD refuses to disclose a copy of the $100,000 voucher to Evelene Twitchell.

LMUD refuses to disclose a copy of checks/vouchers for LMUD memberships paid in 2004.

LMUD refuses to disclose the vouchers for payments

LMUD refuses now to disclose the detail of tasks. KWH used this detail of tasks to show the court that LMUD had been over-billed and Frank Cady overstated work on the KWH v LMUD lawsuit. Due to this exposure, Frank Cady now does not release any of these detailed reports. Although the privileged statements are heavily redacted, the detailed reports indicated who did the tasks, when the task was performed and how much time was spent. Frank Cady now refuses to disclose even redacted "time and task" detail.
