Johnson v. County of Mendocino, 152004

Affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit challenging the validity of a Mendocino County ballot measure that imposed a tax on commercial cannabis businesses. A group of seven individuals brought this suit contending that Measure AI was not validly adopted because the California Constitution required this type of ballot measure to obtain approval of a supermajority of county voters, and the measure had received only a simple majority. Rejecting the plaintiffs' arguments, the First Appellate District affirmed dismissal of their suit.
