CA Supreme Court to Hear Redevelopment Lawsuit Nov. 10

The California Supreme Court will hear arguments Nov. 10 from 9-10am on the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of state lawmakers’ decision to divert $1.7 billion in redevelopment dollars this fiscal year to help balance the budget.

The suit was filed by the California Redevelopment Association and the League of California Cities.

The court agreed to move quickly due to a Jan. 15, 2012, deadline for redevelopment agencies to make their first payment to the state.

If you attend:

Supreme Court Courtroom located on the fourth floor of the Earl Warren Building at 350 McAllister Street in San Francisco, with overflow seating for arguments in this and the other cases scheduled that week at the Hiram Smith State Office Building Auditorium, 455 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco. 

The November 10 proceedings will be broadcast on the California Channel, www.calchannel.com.
