Siskiyou County Superior Court Judge Laura Masunaga denied request for preliminary injunction filed by Peter Arth of Dunsmuir (TLR Note: CaliforniaALL’s Arth — former legal advisor to CPUC’s Michael Peevey)

DUNSMUIR — An appellate court likely will decide the fate of a lawsuit filed last year by a former mayor of the city.

The case has been a 15-month back-and-forth battle of legal challenges and amended filings as Peter Arth, recalled as mayor in 2010, attempts to convince a court that the City Council violated state laws meant to keep city legislators honest and transparent.

Siskiyou County Superior Court Judge Laura Masunaga last month denied a request from David Hicks, Arth’s attorney, for a preliminary injunction that would have temporarily resolved some of the issues in the case as it moved toward a jury trial.

Masunaga this month also denied a motion to tax costs, a request from Hicks to deny awarding some $16,000 of costs to a citizens group also sued in the case, which was dismissed from the case late last year.

Hicks said both issues will be appealed. Also, an attorney representing the citizens group didn’t properly file for the legal costs.

    It suffices to state that we were disappointed when the democratic electorate chose not to make Bernie Sanders their candidate. Many of the issues touched on by Sanders are the same issues that ensure the people of Europe economic security. Many countries in Europe offer a free college education. It’s the sole reason that Europe […]
