6:13 pm
they are trying to hide from you and me. >> unfortunately, the agencies have taken a position that pretty much since the beginning that the public is out to get them. >> pardon me. this is important that i get this exactly right. in today's action, the tolling agencies claim the attorneys who brought the lawsuit talked to a former fastrak employee instead of going through the person's attorney. the attorneys say they did nothing wrong and claim it's a delay tactic to jeopardize the case. >> interesting. important. >> thanks. >> michael will be back with us in 30 minutes. an update on a 7 on your side investigation into the dog training business that could get a lot more tension in the new year. >> don't be afraid to help. a good samaritan is honored for the actions she took during a deadly encounter on bart. she has advice for all of us in
