Added DiffLines:

!!Jack Hardemeyer (Kurt Fuller)

The mayor's assistant who views the Ghostbusters with disdain.

* {{Jerkass}}: Hardemeyer is an arrogant AmoralAttorney who abuses his position of working with the mayor and gets the Ghostbusters committed out of spite.
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Like Peck before him, he goes out of his way to make things miserable for the Ghostbusters.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Without a search warrant, or any sort of legal document, never mind actually showing Peter any credentials to back up his claims, Peck walks into the Ghostbusters' building, "asking" to be shown very sensitive and rightfully classified technology (and specifically chemical tanks that they don't actually have) for no good reason. When a suspicious Peter refuses, he retaliates by forcing his way back into the building without notice, accompanied by a police officer and some guy in a hard-hat, waving around a piece of paper around that neither the Ghostbusters or their lawyers have had a chance to review. This is a major breach of proper protocol for any kind of government facility. How Peck didn't wind up in jail himself is a major case of KarmaHoudini. [[RealityIsUnrealistic Though there are stories of actual government officials and bureaucrats doing that and worse in New York and getting away with it.]]
