Memo to San Bernardino attorney Sanford Kassel.

Dear Sandy,

You should have done a better job screening your client.

Hope he is paying by the hour.

Is your practice limited to civil only?

Best wishes

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Kassel represents fired San Bernardino County administrative officer Mark H. Uffer in his legal action against the county.

To refresh your memory, Uffer alleges he was fired by county supervisors because he was a “whistle-blower”. Uffer says he was cooperating in the District Attorneys corruption investigation and was fired because of that cooperation.

Even though county supes never knew what he was doing and several of his managers, who also cooperated, are still gainfully employed by the county.

Kassel and his loud mouth, has spent much time in local papers spreading the gospel about his client being wronged by everyone else.

Well like they say. What a difference a day makes.

With yesterdays developments at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC), Kassel ought to consider re-categorizing Uffer from being a “whistle-blower” to something else.

We can think of a few titles, and people with those titles, don’t receive damage awards or settlements from lawsuits.

Before Uffer was appointed county administrative officer (CAO) he was the administrator at ARMC.

And after Uffer become CAO he kept ARMC under his wing.

Nothing went on at that hospital without Uffer knowing about it. Current administrator Patrick Petre even reported directly to Uffer.

In case you might have forgotten.

The word is KARMA.
