|City Of Anaheim Responds To Court Determination To Stay Moreno V. City Of Anaheim Case|
ANAHEIM, CA - (July 9, 2013) - Today, in the case Moreno v. City of Anaheim, Judge Franz Miller of the Orange County Superior Court held a status conference to review the City of Anaheim’s proposals and timelines to consider changing the City's electoral system. Included today was a discussion of recent Anaheim City Council action to adopt an ordinance to immediately create residency districts for City Council elections, and to place proposed charter amendments before the voters regarding residency based districts, as well as an increase in the size of the City Council from four to six on the June 2014 ballot.
After listening to both sides, including a description of the ordinance and proposed charter amendment for residency districts and the proposed charter amendment to increase the size of the City Council, the Court further stayed any proceedings until July 30. The purpose of this stay is to provide the Anaheim City Council time to act on the second reading of the residency district ordinance at the July 23 City Council meeting, so that it would be adopted in final form. On July 30, the Judge will hold a status conference to again determine whether to entertain a further stay, potential dismissal, or consider setting a trial date and scheduling hearings on the other pending motions.
