Lodi's legal fight with San Joaquin County over emergency
service dispatching continues to drag on even after a Grand Jury
told the parties to stop bickering.
Lodi is currently in confidential negotiations with the county,
Deputy City Attorney Janice Magdich said Tuesday. If a resolution
is not reached by the end of the month, it is scheduled to go to
trial next year, she said.
