City of Dixon Sues Auditors Over…Ya Know

That money isn't going to find itself now, is it?

An attorney for the city of Dixon filed a civil complaint this morning against the accounting firms that conducted the city's audit for the past 5 years. The complaint says that Samuel S. Card, CPA, P.C., and Janis Card Company, LLC, both located at 501 E. Fourth St. in Sterling, were negligent when their audits did not catch the $53 million prosecutors say the city's former comptroller misappropriated over two decades and should recoup the city's losses.
For now, former Dixon auditor CliftonLarsonAllen (fka Clifton Gunderson) is only listed as a "respondent in discovery," which will allow the city to request documents to decide if should sue anyone else. In other words: gird your loins, CLA.
