Suit against California’s high-speed rail advances in court

By Kathy Hamilton | Cal Watchdog

Monday marks the next critical date in legal action surrounding California’s high-speed rail project. By that date, the office of California’s Attorney General Kamala Harris, which represents the High-Speed Rail Authority, is expected to file a new appeal.

At issue before the Court of Appeal will be a March 4 ruling by Superior Court Judge Michael Kenny that allowed the continuance of the lawsuit by Kings County and two residents affected by the project, John Tos and Aaron Fukuda. Both residents own property that would be taken to build the project.

Kenny’s action was a blow to the California High-Speed Rail Authority, which had asked the court to dismiss the case.
