Change in Plans: Big
Fireworks in Court April 18 & 19

04/17/17 Filed in:

All the briefs have now
been filed in Tos II, a legal challenge
to the constitutionality of AB 1889, the 2016 law that
the High-Speed Rail Authority is relying on to
claim eligibility for Proposition 1A bond funds
for construction of its Central Valley segment.

The hearing scheduled for Tuesday, April 18, at 9:00
in Department 54 in Sacramento Superior Court (in the
Hall of Justice on 6th St., which is separate from
the court complex), and the hearing scheduled for
April 19 at 11:00 in the same courtroom have both
been postponed.

They have both
been rescheduled to April 26 at 11:00

The court will hear argument then on the Authority’s
Demurrer and Motion to Strike Allegations, which seek
to terminate the Tos litigation. It will simultaneously
consider the motion for a Preliminary Injunction to
block the use of funds for construction.

Under court rules, a tentative decision may be posted
on the court’s website at 2:00 the day before the
hearing. Enter the hearing date and Department
