May 2017

May 22 @ 1:30 pm Museum House Trial
Central Justice Center (Santa Ana), Courtroom C32

The Orange County Museum of Art has brought a suit against the City and its residents seeking to invalidate the Museum House referendum petition, and all the Council’s actions based on it, citing alleged technical violations in the petition’s form and content. On his afternoon docket, the judge in the case will be hearing an “anti-SLAPP” motion brought by the Line In The Sand PAC to dismiss OCMA’s filings as a meritless “strategic lawsuit against public participation.” Barring appeal, success in this would end the case and end all doubts about the validity of the Council’s repeal of the Museum House approvals. Public attendance is welcome and encouraged.  Read more
