State Superior Court in Sacramento Decides for State in VLF Diversion Lawsuit

League Board to Review Opinion and Consider Appeal Options

The League was disappointed to learn that Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Lloyd Connelly issued an opinion on Monday, March 18, denying the League’s petition challenging the constitutionality of the Legislature’s 2011 decision to fund the criminal justice realignment program in part with vehicle license fee (VLF) revenues. These funds had been previously allocated to cities on an unrestricted basis. The League’s legal counsel is currently reviewing the decision. The board of directors will be advised on the matter, including its options to appeal. A full copy of Judge Connelly’s decision is available on the League’s website.
