Trash hearing postponed

Due to an overcrowded schedule, the judge in the case against the City of Los Alamitos (“Citizens for Fair Trash Contract vs. City of Los Alamitos”) has postponed the hearing scheduled for today.

The new date will by July 1.

The first hearing in the case resulted in a favorable ruling in an anti-SLAPP motion that dropped three members of the City Council — Mayor Kenneth Stephens, Mayor Pro Tem Troy Edgar and Councilwoman Marilynn Poe — out of the law suit. The favorable ruling also awarded court costs.

The City of Los Alamitos and Consolidated Disposal remain as targets of the law suit.

The case ID is 30-2010-00420414-CU-WM-CJC.
