In July 25, 2013 Judge Mooney ruled, after a trial, that Palmdale had Violated the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA) The Judge ordered that in order to address the violation Palmdale must propose changes in its voting process.
Palmdale appealed. As of this date no results have come down from the Appellate Courts.
Palmdale, without submitting changes, ignores Judge Mooney’s order, and also not waiting for a decision from the Appellate Court, proceeds with the election, with the same process that was ruled in violation of CVRA. The judge grants an injunction to stop the election. Palmdale and a candidate file another Appeal to this Injunction ruling by Judge Mooney. Still no ruling by the Appellate Court on either of these two issues.
What do you think?
Should Palmdale ignore Judge Mooney’s ruling of July 23, 2013: Not wait for the appellate Courts decision on the CVRA; Ignore the judges ruling on the injunction and again not wait for the Appellate Courts decision on the Injunction and forget about the law and proceed with the election?
Mr. Loa, what is your opinion, and why?
