1972 – 50 years of service to the commercial industrial retail real estate industry – 2022.


August 19, 2011

On behalf of the commercial, industrial, and retail real estate industry, CBPA has filed with the California Supreme Court a letter requesting Amicus standing to join in the lawsuit with California Redevelopment Association and California League of Cities against action by state. Many other associations expected to follow CBPA’s lead.

The Supreme Court has outlined an expedited briefing schedule designed to facilitate oral argument as early as possible, and a decision before January 15, 2012, the date when redevelopment agencies are required to make their first payment. Here are the key deadlines as laid out in the court’s order:

* September 9, 2011: the State must file its brief.

* September 24, 2011: CRA and the League must file their response to the State’s filing.

* September 30, 2011: Amicus curiae briefs must be filed with the court.

* October 7, 2011: Replies to individual amicus briefs must be filed.

The court states it does not anticipate extending any of these deadlines and intends to set a hearing for oral arguments before the end of the year.
