PW, you forgot to mention the third scenario, which would be the possibility of one of the parties appealing to a higher court. It is possible that could delay a vote further until a November election.

The headline seems wrong. The court hearing is on Friday, not today. Right?

Yes, there is no "today's decision". Later in the text is written
"If Roesch decides Friday that..."
Seems like this article was written for Friday's publication.
Also, I agree that this complaint is a likely candidate for appeal if the Lin's lose, because the Appellate courts have been the primary venue to settle land use disputes vis a vis Election Law. All of this is a consequence of the fact that California has in its constitution an initiative and referendum process that is very liberal. Recall that few states in the union have the same and most have such process at all.
