The Malibu City Council named Assistant City Attorney Trevor Rusin the Interim City Attorney at the June 27, 2022 regular City Council meeting. Trevor has served as the Assistant City Attorney for Malibu since 2016 and worked for the City for over a decade. 

The appointment, effective immediately, was made after Interim City Attorney John Cotti announced that he was resigning from Best Best and Krieger, LLP (BBK), the law firm that has provided Malibu’s City Attorney services since 2018, to take a legal position with a construction firm. He has served as the Interim City Attorney since former City Attorney Christi Hogin retired in 2020.

The City Council thanked Cotti for his service to the City and congratulated Rusin on his appointment.
