#17-111 County of San Diego v. Commission on State Mandates, S239907. (D068657; 7 Cal.App.5th 12; San Diego County Superior Court; 37-2014-0005050-CU-WM-CTL.)

#17-111 County of San Diego v. Commission on State Mandates, S239907. (D068657; 7 Cal.App.5th 12; San Diego County Superior Court; 37-2014-0005050-CU-WM-CTL.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal reversed the judgment in an action for writ of administrative mandate. This case presents the following issue: Did The Sexual Predator Punishment and Control Act (the voter initiative otherwise known as “Jessica’s Law” or Proposition 83), which amended and reenacted provisions of the Sexually Violent Predator Act, a statutory scheme that the Commission on State Mandates had found to include reimbursable state mandates, constitute a “change in the law” sufficient to support the Commission’s decision that some of those mandates were no longer reimbursable by the State of California?

Review granted: 3/29/2017
