Populism, Politics, And Procedure: The Saga Of Summary Judgment And The Rulemaking Process In California, Glenn S. Koppel Oct 2012

Populism, Politics, And Procedure: The Saga Of Summary Judgment And The Rulemaking Process In California, Glenn S. Koppel

Pepperdine Law Review

The California Constitution gives the primary power to promulgate rules of civil procedure for the state courts to the legislature and the people, leaving the state’s Judicial Council with residual, or secondary, authority to adopt rules of procedure and court administration “when and where the higher authority of the Legislature and the people has not been exercised.” This Article demonstrates how this legislative rulemaking process, referred to herein as “legislative primacy,” does not work because, as of the writing of this article in 1997, it produced ineffective statutory summary judgment law.

The Gray Zone In The Power Of Local Municipalities: Where Zoning Authority Clashes With State Law, Skye L. Daley

The Journal of Business, Entrepreneurship & the Law

This article will explore the oft-overlooked area of police powers granted to local municipalities by the California Constitution through the lens of marijuana dispensaries.

If local municipalities are the creation of the state--indeed, an …

Mediation Of Proposition 187: Creative Solution To An Old Problem? Or Quiet Death For Initiatives?, Nicole E. Lucy

Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal

The initiative Proposition 187 has been a catalyst for change. Supporters heralded it as the solution to "Save Our State" from the ills of illegal immigration. Those who opposed it, used Proposition 187 as a battle cry to mobilize a disenfranchised minority. Irrespective of ideology, Proposition 187 ended as no one could have predicted in November 1994 when it passed, 59% to 41%. When Governor Gray Davis inherited the Proposition 187 appeal from former Governor Pete Wilson, Governor Davis took the unprecedented step of seeking to resolve the conflict through mediation rather than actively defending Proposition 187 on appeal to …
