Baily v. County of El Dorado

1985 - 162 Cal.App.3d 94

Homeowners Protective Committee of El Dorado County, Real Party in Interest

The Appellate Court issued a peremptory writ issued in the first instance to compel the respondent county to place an initiative measure on the ballot. The initiative measure required the creation of buffer zones surrounding strip and pit mining projects. Applicants for a mining project sought to halt the processing of the initiative, claiming that the proposed ordinance was an invalid exercise of the county’s police powers and that the “short title” of the initiative was misleading. I was lead counsel for this matter.
