Mosby, who ran unsuccessfully for the Council in 2007 against William Cole, before Reservoir Hill was shifted from District 11 to District 7, said he saw an opportunity when Conaway filed the suit."I can remember the day I was driving to Northern Virginia and my wife called and said, 'Councilwoman Belinda Conaway just filed a $20 million lawsuit,'" said Mosby, 32. "My initial reaction was why would she draw more attention to this issue? We kind of sat back and watched it. I felt like if Belinda Conaway was going to be able to escape this residency issue, she was going to be unbeatable for years to go. I knew they had the Conaway name. but I saw it as now or never. If she was going to be able to escape this, she would be untouchable. It was now or never."
