Brown v. Superior Court, 232642

In an action involving the validity of amendments to the Justice and Rehabilitation Act, a measure submitted for public comment, in light of Elections Code section 9002, enacted in 2014 to create a new process by which a proposed initiative measure is submitted for public comment, the trial court's grant of a writ of mandate requiring the Attorney General to reject the amendments is vacated where: 1) the legislative history and statutory language demonstrate that the Legislature intended the comment period to facilitate feedback, not to create a broad public forum; and 2) the Legislature did not preclude substantive amendments.
