    In news from down the coast … the city of Santa Monica has lawyered up and won a delay in a court order to dissolve its city council. 

    The California Court of Appeal says the current city council members can continue to serve while the City’s appeal in a voting rights lawsuit is heard.

    Malibu lawyer Kevin Shenkman … representing school board member Oscar del la Torre and others … had won an order dissolving the city council there. 

    A lower court also ordered that the city hold a new city council election . in June 2nd … and adpt district city council elections … instead of city wide council seats.

    The Santa Monica machinations are of more than passing interest to Malibu … not the least of which because because the city council might also shift the  school district to voting by district if it loses in the Court of Appeal,

    The Santa Monica city council has hired uberlawyer Theodore Boutrous Jr. to represent them.

    Spare no expense.
