It would seem

Mr. Sparks has a problem known as breach of contract. Either he knew he did not have adequate liability insurance, in which case he has the problem; or he pleads he did not know in which case the monkey may fall onto his insurance agent's back. In either case, how can he represent himself as qualified to serve on the Council? The Council oversees a budget of many millions of dollars. It would appear he either ignored his contractual obligation or did not have the business know how to determine his coverage limit. On another note, one must question why the Housing Authority did not require him to provide a Certificate of Insurance prior to commencing his inspection. That's pretty common business practice. IN all candor, it probably costs no more than $50 annually to increase the Liability Coverage limit from his reported $500,000 to $1,000,000. Pretty Cheap if he knew and did not do the right thing. One wonders how he can sit on City Council with this sword of Damacles hanging over his head. What happens if the Court rules in favor of the HOusing Authority? His business is probably incorporated in which case he personally has no liability. In that case, should he be allowed to continue on the Council? Of course, on another note, Mr. Shipman gets paid first from any settlment or judgement. The Housing Authority should not count on the half million dollars in the event the court rules in their favor.
