California Court of Appeal Puts on Hold New Elections in Santa Monica for Violations of California Voting Rights Act

As I noted on March 12, the parties in the Santa Monica California Voting Rights Act litigation have been having a side fight while the case is on appeal as to whether new district elections must take place this summer, as the trial court ordered, before the appeal is heard.

Yesterday the California Court of Appeal issued this stay order, meaning there will be no district-based elections in Santa Monica this summer while the appeal is resolved.
