BCS Appeal Hearing

This morning I attended the latest in a long string of litigation from BCS.  We met at the Sixth District Court of Appeals in San Jose to hear oral arguements in the BCS appeal of Judge Kleinberg's previous ruling for LASD.

I believe strongly in our position, and I believe that LASD has consistently applied the "reasonably equivalent" standard to our process.  Districts have pretty broad discretion in setting up our methodology for determining reasonable equivalence.  Hopefully the Appeals Court will reinforce that message and we can move forward with less litigation in the future.

In terms of timelines, the Court may return a decision quickly, or it could take several months.  We just have to wait and see where it goes.  If you want to be updated on the case as soon as it comes out, you can subscribe to this link.
