California Supreme Court Rules Against Costa Mesa
SUPREME COURT SAYS NO! TWICE!
Orange County Employees Association (OCEA) announced that the California Supreme Court today "denied the City of Costa Mesa's attempt to overturn the injunction blocking the City from laying off more than 100 City employees and outsourcing their jobs to the private sector."
"DEPUBLISHING" REQUEST DENIED, TOO
The Court also denied the request to depublish the Appellate Court opinion upholding the preliminary injunction, which apparently means that many California cities now find themselves on the horns of a dilemma. As we understand previous information on this issue, this may mean that many California cities are now in violation of the law regarding outsourcing city operations.
A BIG PROBLEM!
Both the League of California Cities and the Association of California Cities Orange County had joined the petition to the Supreme Court on the depublishing issue.
CITY RESPONSE NOT AVAILABLE
Calls to city officials had gone unanswered by the time I decided to publish this information. As I get more information I'll update this entry. Check back later.
