Redevelopment Dissolution Lawsuits Now Number 120 and Counting

Dissolution Rulings Regularly Posted to League Website

June 21, 2013
The number of lawsuits filed continues to grow as the unwinding of redevelopment continues. By Wednesday, June 19, that number reached 120 lawsuits related to redevelopment dissolution.
Many of the newer lawsuits involve disputes concerning the due diligence reviews required by AB 1484. Many other lawsuits involve ROPS disputes. The League expects the flow of new lawsuits to continue for the foreseeable future.
The Sacramento Superior Court has begun issuing rulings in earlier redevelopment dissolution-related lawsuits. The League has collected these rulings and has posted them online along with the organization’s summary of redevelopment dissolution litigation.
Of particular interest are the rulings received by the cities of Emeryville, Murrieta, and Pasadena, all of which were favorable to the cities. The Pasadena ruling is currently on appeal in the Third District Court of Appeal.
