The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA) has reported this afternoon via its email service that the lawsuit filed by former UCLA Chancellor Charles Young to overturn the 2/3 tax increase requirement in Prop 13 of 1978 has been rejected by the California Supreme Court. So far, no other news source has so reported:
The California Supreme Court has refused to hear a challenge to significant aspects of Proposition 13, prosecuted by former UCLA Chancellor Charles Young… Earlier this year, the 2nd District Court of Appeal agreed with attorneys representing the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association that Young’s suit challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 13 lacks merit… After the Court of Appeal affirmed HJTA’s victory, Young returned to… the Supreme Court, and he has again been rejected…
Although the email contains a link to the HJTA website, as yet the message in the email is not reprinted there. If there is a confirmation from another news source, the update will appear on this blog.
UPDATE: Here is a confirmation from another source:
