In plaintiff's request for writ of mandamus seeking to compel the City of Anaheim to litigate tax assessment proceedings without the assistance of outside counsel retained pursuant to a contingency fee agreement claiming that the fee arrangement violates a government lawyer's duty of neutrality, trial court's denial of the writ petition is affirmed as, Clancy does not bar contingency fee lawyers from assisting government lawyers as co-counsel in ordinary civil litigation such as this, and the tax assessment proceeding is a civil administrative action that does not require the delicate weighing of values described in Clancy.
