Update: on October 8, the hearing originally scheduled for September 25, and then postponed to October 9, was again postponed. The new date is October 29.
A hearing on our constitutional challenge to California’s “top two” elections has been scheduled for October 29. This hearing will about defendant Debra Bowen’s “demurrer” to the suit (a demurrer is a motion to dismiss a lawsuit without holding a trial). Unless the court grants the defendant’s motion, there will be further hearings on the merits of our case.
The plaintiffs encourage supporters in the Bay Area to attend this important court hearing.
