ZD's AB 1381 Homie, Judge Janavs, To Hear Shady, Unconstitutional Prop. R on January 25th
December 26, 2006 for Immediate Release
Proposition R back to court -- hearing date set.
From: David Hernandez SFV Community Advocate--Ted Hayes City of Los Angeles Homeless Advocate.
Prop R, the controversial proposition which extended the term limits for Los Angeles City Council members, returns to court for constitutional review.
The Proposition described by some as Ethics Reform written for Lobbyists by Lobbyists will once again undergo judicial scrutiny to determine if the measure presented to the voters violated the California Constitution. The combining of two issues in one measure is prohibited by the State Constitution. Prop R combined the extension of City Council Term limits with Ethics Reform.
The January 25, 2007 hearing will be in Department 85 and will be heard by Judge Dzintra Janavs.
Judge Janavs is no stranger to high profile cases and recently ruled on the constitutionality of AB 1381, the bill which transferred power over LAUSD from the LA School Board to the Mayor of Los Angeles. Judge Janavs ruled AB 1381 did violate the California Constitution.
Judge Janavs has served on the bench for over twenty years. Further information available at www.termedout.com.
