In a lawsuit that could go to trial next month, attorneys for San Francisco and a regional accrediting commission argued at a hearing Wednesday over whether City College of San Francisco has wrongly faced the loss of its accreditation.
City Attorney Dennis Herrera sued the commission last year, saying it targeted the school unfairly.
San Francisco Superior Court Judge Curtis Karnow heard cross-motions for summary judgment from Deputy City Attorney Thomas Lakritz, as well as from Andrew Sclar, an attorney for the Novato-based Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges.
Each attorney spoke for about an hour, presenting statements and answering questions from the judge. If Karnow denies both motions, a trial is set for Oct. 27.
