Court of Appeal Denies Petition to Delay Implementation of SB 7/SB 922/SB 829
November 10, 2014 - Laws Remain in Full Effect - The Court of Appeal for the Fourth Appellate District rejected a petition filed by the Cities of Fresno, El Centro, Carlsbad, Oceanside, El Cajon and Vista seeking to delay the implementation of SB 7/SB 922/SB 829.
The Cities asked the Court of Appeal for an emergency injunction to prevent these laws from being implemented while the Cities appeal the trial court ruling that rejected the Cities’ legal challenge to the laws. The State Building Trades and the State (Attorney General) opposed the request.
A day after reading the opposition briefs, the Court of Appeal unanimously denied the Cities’ request for an emergency injunction. The three judge panel that denied the injunction was made up of appointees of former Governors Pete Wilson and George Deukmejian. The Court of Appeal’s order is attached.
The ruling means that SB 7/SB 922/SB 829 remain in effect. These laws provide a financial incentive for charter cities to maintain construction contracting policies that support good jobs, apprenticeship training, and a strong economy.
