Decision - People (City of Santa Ana) v. Khaled
This decision is final, and published.
citation is believed to be: People v. Khaled
(2010) 186 Cal.App.4th Supp. 1
After the Orange County Superior Court Appellate
Division, in May 2010, ruled in favor of Khaled and
certified the case for publication, Redflex and
at least three cities wrote to the California Supreme
Court, asking it to deny publication.
Then, in mid-July, the 4th District Court of Appeal (the
District Court of Appeal is the next level of appeal
above a county's Appellate Division) asked for the case
files to be sent to it, presumably so that they could
consider whether to transfer the case to themselves for
review. Now, per a July 23 article in the
Metropolitan News-Enterprise, "The ruling is now final
after the Court of Appeal denied transfer, and was
posted yesterday on the state courts website."
The general issue of which decisions get published, and
which don't, is under study. See nonpublication.com
for more information.
