When hearings continued on June 1, Justice Wilk reminded City counselors that
they had no judicial sanction for the eviction: "Nobody said you could. Nobody said you
should. We haven't determined whether they [squatters] should be there or not. ... I have
to consider the effect of your actions .... What better evidence can there be for me of what
I am to consider." He left no room for misinterpretation: "The City fraudulently obtained
those two and a half buildings by creating a crisis that never existed."
