Legislature Passes Bill To Solve Sturgeon Problem

The Metropolitan News reports (here) that the Legislature has passed SB2X 11, which solves the problem created by last year's decision in Sturgeon v. County of Los Angeles, which had invalidated Los Angeles County's practice of supplementing judicial salaries. The new bill (here) grandfathers existing judicial benefits and immunizes public employees who paid them. Earlier links to Sturgeon can be found here and here.
