TUCSON MAYOR AND COUNCILTRANSCRIPT SEPTEMBER 20, 2011
Mayor Walkup: “Roy Warden” Roy Warden: “Good evening, Mayor and Council, Roy Warden, Tucson Arizona.I’m quite delighted that tonight we’ve gone a long way intoclarifying the issues that separate us because it will make itmuch easier for a judicial determination over in Superior Courtand one following that in Federal Court.I want to complete the comments I was going to make lastweek, I’m going to complete tonight, try to complete.We had a young lady up here, that read a chapter from a book,that’s OK, I have no complaint about that.I’m going to read some very specific language from Arizona CaseLaw, the standards regarding emotional distress, and the specificlanguage that was used regarding the conduct of a particularmember that’s in this room here.Now, you folks expect the public to treat you with decorum andrespect, and so forth and so on.Lawful behavior. We expect the same of you.Regarding behavior; part of this is subjective. Opinion, and soforth and so on.However. Mr. Miranda here, was the subject of a law suit. Andtwo other public officials.He went before a jury in 2006. They listened to 17 days of testimony.
 
And then they rendered their verdict.And before that verdict was read, or, or rendered, the jury hadto consider this, regarding the conduct of Richard Miranda:If they were to reach a verdict on emotional damages, whichthey did, they had to find that Mr. Miranda’s acts were “sooutrageous in character and so extreme in degree as to gobeyond all possible bounds of decency, and to be regarded asatrocious and utterly intolerable in a civilized community.” That’s law.Those are the legal standards that jury had to consider beforethey rendered a verdict on emotional damages and held him andtwo other public officials liable for $500.000.00 in that particularaspect of the case, of the verdict, in emotional damages. “Outrageous conduct.”  “Utterly intolerable in a civilized community.” That’s the type of behavior he engaged in. That’s the type of behavior that the jury found he engaged in, and I’m sure hedidn’t raise his voice when he did the things he did.I’m sure he was quite calm about it. And you’re looking at theclock Mr. Mayor. I will be done.You got to ask yourself this: If the public has expectations, ah,of government, how can you justify your employment of Mr.Miranda when citizens of this community have rendered such averdict?I’ll be back next week.” Mayor Walkup: “I must warn you: that is precisely what the, the rules prohibit,is the repetitive, personal assaults.So, I want you to recognize it.
