CA Court Blocks Sacramento Arena Initiative

Following up on this post, a trial court has issued this ruling holding that the arena measure may not go on the ballot. The court offers two reasons: (1) the proposal must be made as an amendment to the city charter, not done, as this purports to do, through an initiative; (2) the circulation of the measure did not substantially comply with the requirements for circulating initiatives and the problems could have misled voters.

We will see if there will be an appeal, but on first read the opinion seems persuasive.
