Good news for Oregon. A federal judge, Ann Aiken, has refused to strike down the ballot language for Measure 49, the much-needed fix for Measure 37.
Interestingly, the decision came shortly after the case was reassigned from Judge Hogan to Judge Mosman, and then further reassigned to Judge Aiken. I don't know what this means or how it came about, but the final decision was fair (and expected, by me at least).
The AP story says that Oregonians in Action plans to lawsuit their way on with a challenge in Marion County District Court.
Suggestion to OIA: why don't you try convincing Oregonians that large subdivisions on farm, forest, and groundwater limited land are just fine and dandy, as Measure 37 allows?
That'd be a hard sell, wouldn't it? Guess this explains why OIA is afraid of the upcoming November vote. Strange, since this is a group that always is braying about "respecting the will of the people."
Let that will be heard, OIA. No more lawsuits trying to stop the election.
