For those of you following the appeal of CA Assembly Bill 1775, all hope is not lost …
The California Supreme Court has granted review of the petition for yet another appeal regarding AB1775! This can only be good news, as the Supreme Court typically receives about 4,000 petitions per year and only grants about 60.
Lead attorney Mark Hardiman explained that the Supreme Court granting this petition means they will hear an appeal to the Court of Appeals’ decision on Mathews et al v. Kamala Harris. This typically means that the Supreme Court believes the Court of Appeals decided the case incorrectly, in whole or in part. Hardiman adds, “That does not, however, necessarily mean the Supreme Court agrees with our interpretation of the law.”
