Opening Brief Finally Filed in Oak Grove Referendum Appeal

Original post made by Stacey, Amberwood/Wood Meadows, on Sep 11, 2008

I knew about this since Tuesday and was wondering if PW was going to report anything on it, or rely upon this blog for the news... It is reported in The Independent today so I'll write about it now instead of waiting to see if PW prints something in tomorrow's edition.

According to the court website, the respondent's brief is due on Oct. 9. It lists the defendant/respondent as being the City Clerk of Pleasanton, which is confusing to me. Wouldn't it be the Lins?

Well, well. Now where are all the naysayers that implied the request for extension of the appeal could be a stalling tactic by the "Ayala Faction"?? What say you now???

But wait!! Now I could be wrong, but didn't at least one "wanna-be lawyer" predict it wouldn't even get this far along.

Who knows, maybe deep pockets can't keep the "little people" down after all. Guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens next but I'd bet if the "Ayala Faction" comes out on top in the appeal process, this is a long way from over. Deep pockets has a lot to lose....

Yea! At last they filed after two 1-month extensions. I wish I could have done that with my schoolwork! I also wish there were a free electronic copy of the opening brief available on the appellate court website like the superior court has. It better be pretty good to have kept us all waiting so long. :) I wonder if the other side of the equation will delay at all.

Why does it seem like no one calling up the State legislature on this if this is such a huge issue? That is where the problem of confusion about the "full text" requirement can be fixed.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
