Council to Discuss Macpherson Suit in Closed Meeting

Trial date set for April 4.

Hermosa Beach’s ongoing legal battle with Macpherson Oil Co. will remain the center of discussion in a closed session City Council meeting Thursday at 6 p.m., according to the meeting agenda.

"The City Council finds, based on advice from legal counsel, that discussion in open session will prejudice the position of the City in the litigation," the agenda states.

The multimillion-dollar that Macpherson Oil brought against the city of Hermosa Beach was over an oil-drilling project.

A in the 13-year contract dispute between the city and oil company was reset last year for April 4.
