In an explosive newly released court document, a former City of Miami manager testified under oath that he witnessed first-hand that City of Miami commissioner Joe Carollo was “targeting” code enforcement against certain businesses in Little Havana in order to shut them down.

The new transcript was released as part of a lawsuit winding its way through federal courts, alleging that the City of Miami “deployed a deliberate policy” of harassing and shutting down a group of bars and restaurants in Little Havana with which Carollo had a political feud. Another similar lawsuit is also separately in the federal courts.

City of Miami attorneys sought to keep sworn testimony from former City Manager Emilio Gonzalez confidential. In an order entered last week, U.S. District Court Judge Lissette Reid ruled that the testimony cannot be kept secret.

In sworn statements, Gonzalez said he witnessed Commissioner Joe Carollo direct city resources to shut down specific businesses in Little Havana, including the Ball & Chain salsa club.

He called it ‘targeting.’

The testimony from the former city manager marks a potential turning point in a pair of lawsuits that allege several departments of the city government were used to go after certain businesses for code violations, and those certain businesses alone.

Attorney J.C. Planas, who has been involved in efforts to recall Commissioner Carollo, told WLRN that the testimony “puts in black and white what I already suspected.”

    In an explosive newly released court document, a former City of Miami manager testified under oath that he witnessed first-hand that City of Miami commissioner Joe Carollo was “targeting” code enforcement against certain businesses in Little Havana in order to shut them down.

    The new transcript was released as part of a lawsuit winding its way through federal courts, alleging that the City of Miami “deployed a deliberate policy” of harassing and shutting down a group of bars and restaurants in Little Havana with which Carollo had a political feud. Another similar lawsuit is also separately in the federal courts.

    City of Miami attorneys sought to keep sworn testimony from former City Manager Emilio Gonzalez confidential. In an order entered last week, U.S. District Court Judge Lissette Reid ruled that the testimony cannot be kept secret.

    In sworn statements, Gonzalez said he witnessed Commissioner Joe Carollo direct city resources to shut down specific businesses in Little Havana, including the Ball & Chain salsa club.

    He called it ‘targeting.’

    The testimony from the former city manager marks a potential turning point in a pair of lawsuits that allege several departments of the city government were used to go after certain businesses for code violations, and those certain businesses alone.

    Attorney J.C. Planas, who has been involved in efforts to recall Commissioner Carollo, told WLRN that the testimony “puts in black and white what I already suspected.”
