Reading Grillo's attorney's response to Mayeda's attack on Grillo, shows what appears to be outright malice and the construction of enough Catch-22 rules to thwart D.E.L.T.A.s compliance with any licensing protocol. The proposed County legislation would destroy D.E.L.T.A. and possibly condemn over a thousand animals to death.
No matter what you think of Leo Grillo, think about the animals.
The proposed legislation could also lead to the destruction of many other larger rescue shelters, as so much is left up to Mayeda's discretion in the administration.
Regarding the "hoops" DELTA is being made to jump, Judge Moses stated:
“Well, let me just tell you my view. I don’t want to be dragged into a property dispute here…My order is that..the facility get licensed….It sounds like they are making efforts and it sounds like rather significant efforts in terms of expenditure of time and money and energy and jumping through all of the bureaucractic and administrative hoops necessary. I don’t see any foot- dragging here. It seems like they’re on it and they’re doing what they need to do, but that there are a lot of hoops that they have to jump through….I would say that it’s certainly not Mr. Grillo’s fault, that these repeated administrative administrative and procedural barriers keep popping up that they then have to overcome. But it seems like they’re making a good faith effort….That’s my view”.
