A lawsuit challenging the rights of three sitting council members to remain in office turned the City of Mission Viejo upside down as we are heading toward the November 8th election of all five council seats in newly-created council districts (District Map). It is a complex case that has confused many residents, so I have attached the WRIT OF SUPERSEDEAS (click link) wherein the City lays out its most compelling arguments for appeal and the overturn of Judge Schwarm’s Judgment in the case for your review. The Court of Appeals has granted a STAY ORDER (click link) so the three duly elected council members will remain in office until the Appeal can be decided. The next hearing date is October 18th.
