☛ ER Companies challenge Measure T in court over definition of ‘local’ business
Two companies challenging the constitutionality of a voter-approved county ordinance are asking the U.S. District Court for Northern California to issue a temporary restraining order that would allow them to contribute to supervisorial candidates’ campaigns in the upcoming election.
Mercer-Fraser Company and O & M Industries filed a lawsuit against the county in August over Measure T, an ordinance that prohibits “non-local corporations” from contributing to any election inside Humboldt County borders.
On Friday, a hearing to have a temporary restraining order (TRO) placed on the ordinance so that the two companies may contribute was continued until Monday.
So, they're asking for a stay until the matter is finally decided. And the County is fighting THAT?
