Description

"A Bay Guardian investigation of the City of San Francisco's contract with a towing company found that the city was losing money in the deal, that there was little to no oversight of the towing program and that the company was treating owners of the towed vehicles badly." As a result of the investigation, the newspaper sued the city government for noncompliance with public transparency laws.
