SAN BERNARDINO, CA – On September 25, The City of San Bernardino agreed to pay $1.3 million to settle the civil lawsuit against them brought on by Pepe’s Towing Service. The lawsuit dates back to 2018 when Pepe’s owner, Manny Acosta, filed a lawsuit against the City and Mayor Valdivia, claiming discrimination and pay to play practices. As the claim unfolded, it was discovered towing companies who had received City contracts had contributed to the Mayor’s campaign and gave him cash illegally.

Alongside the efforts of Manny’s legal team, we leveraged the support of community advocates, social media, and media coverage to move the case forward toward a resolution.
