Lawsuit Filed Challenging Proposition D
Sales tax initiative alleged to violate Elections Code, state Constitution, and City Charter


 
(San Diego) – Five provisions of Proposition D, the City of San Diego’s half-cent sales tax initiative are being challenged in a lawsuit filed today as inconsistent with the requirements of the Elections Code, the California Constitution, and the San Diego City Charter.

On behalf of plaintiffs Richard Rider and Stephen Cicero, attorney Edward M. Teyssier makes five specific allegations:

(a) The Proposition violates the ‘single issue’ rule;
(b) The Proposition contains certain provisions that are beyond the power of the voters to adopt, in that those provisions are not legislative in character, but are instead administrative measures that lie within the sole domain of the City administration (for example, creating a managed competition guide);
(c) The Proposition proposes what would be an unconstitutional delegation of legislative power to the City Auditor;
(d) Essential provisions of Proposition D are unconstitutionally vague;
(e) The Proposition’s ballot title and summary (“Ballot Title” or just, “Title”) violates the Elections Code because its language is “false,” “misleading,” or is not “impartial.”

Named as defendants are Elizabeth S. Maland in her official capacity as City Clerk, City of San Diego; and Deborah Seiler, in her official capacity as Registrar of Voters, San Diego County. Also named as Real Parties-In-Interest are the City of San Diego; Mayor Jerry Sanders, and the members of the San Diego City Council.

In the introduction, the filing states “If it is approved by the voters, [Prop D’s] monstrously unconstitutional and illegal provisions will likely precipitate numerous lawsuits that will haunt our local courts for many years.”

A growing coalition of taxpayer advocates, civic leaders, business owners, and neighborhood activists is emerging to fight Prop D. For more information visit www.StopTheSalesTax.com
