San Diego Domestic Violence Contracts Probed

A San Diego program to help victims of domestic violence is under investigation for allegedly making illegal contracts.

U-T San Diego says the city attorney has concluded that the city failed to obtain competitive bids or proper approval when it partnered with the Family Justice Center Alliance.

The alliance is a nonprofit organization founded by former City Attorney Casey Gwinn. The contracts involved were worth thousands of dollars. They have expired but the case has been referred to the city auditor.

The alliance issued a statement Monday denying wrongdoing and saying that its agreements complied with all regulations.
