THE NAT'L TAX-LIMITATION COMM. v. SCHWARZENEGGER, C043583
Whether there is an energy shortage justifying a state of emergency presents a judiciable question that is not barred from review by the political question doctrine; as a result, the trial court erred in sustaining the Governor-s demurrer, however, because this case is now moot, it is dismissed pursuant to the stipulation of the parties.
