Opponents of the city of San Diego’s another suit against the measure’s fiscal analysis “is forthcoming.”

Finally, many legal filings are staid affairs. This one isn’t. That’s much appreciated by those of us who read these regularly. The most colorful passage:

What resulted was the subject Proposition D, a ‘Frankenstein Proposition’ that was charged into life as City Ordinance No. O-19986. Unless this Court acts either to void it or substantially modify it, it will appear on the ballot as Proposition D where, if it is approved by voters, its monstrously unconstitutional and illegal provisions will likely precipitate numerous lawsuits that will haunt our local courts for many years.

Goldsmith issued this statement: “The City Attorney’s Office will vigorously defend the right of voters to decide the fate of Proposition D.”
