Sacramento County Superior Court Decides League’s AB 1484 Lawsuit Not Yet “Ripe”

July 11, 2013
Today the Sacramento County Superior Court ruled that it did not want to decide yet whether the property and sales tax claw back provisions of AB 1484, the redevelopment agency dissolution legislation of 2011, were unconstitutional under Propositions 1A (2004) and 22 (2010) because the penalties had not yet been invoked against the petitioners or any members of the League by the Department of Finance.
 
Moreover, the court also refused to decide whether the DOF had violated the California Administrative Procedures Act by issuing underground regulations and whether AB 1484 constituted an unconstitutional delegation of legislative power for the same reason of a lack of “ripeness.”
 
A copy of the court’s decision is available on the League’s website. The League’s attorneys are currently reviewing the decision and will be advising the League board on their options at the board’s meeting in San Diego today and tomorrow. The League will publish a more complete analysis of the decision in the near future.
