Consulting Eng'rs and Land Surveyors of California v. California Dept. of Transp., C056422

In an action filed by plaintiffs seeking a judicial determination that the civil service provisions of Senate Bill 1026 -- requiring that certain work is affirmed where on the project must be performed by employees of defendant-Caltrans -- violated Article XXII and an order permanently enjoining defendant from implementing those statutory provisions, judgment in favor of plaintiff is affirmed where: 1) the trial court correctly held that the portions of certain statutes requiring that certain architectural and engineering work must be performed by architects and engineers employed by defendant-Caltrans were unconstitutional; and 2) defendant-Caltrans may choose to have this work performed by its employees, but the Legislature could not mandate that Caltrans do so.
