Main Topic Another Court Says 'No' to Mayor Villaraigosa 19 MIN, 14 SEC

The Mayor’s plan to take partial control of Los Angeles Unified School District is unconstitutional—even though it was passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor.  That’s the unanimous decision of a 3-judge appellate panel, upholding the same ruling by a lower court.  The decision throws out a state law passed by the legislature and signed by Governor Schwarzenegger.
