The Appellate Court's Ruling Will Allow the Three Council Members to Keep Their Seats Pending Final Case Disposition

October 6, 2022 - COSTA MESA, California The California Court of Appeal, Fourth Appellate District, Division Three, issued an order on Thursday, September 29, 2022, granting an immediate stay from the orders issued by the Orange County Superior Court mandating the removal of three members of the Mission Viejo city council. The appellate court stayed the lower court's ruling that the three City Council members overstayed their terms of office. Although the appellate court's decision does not immediately overturn the lower court's decision, the stay will allow the three members to continue to serve on the council pending a final decision in the coming weeks. (Orange County Superior Court No. 30-2022-01262431; Appellate Case No. G061838)

Ring Bender Partners Patrick "Kit" Bobko, Norman A. Dupont, and Jay A. Tufano represented the City of Mission Viejo and the three council members in the appellate proceedings.
