Appeals Court Sets Date in Case Against Gavin Newsom

by ECT

SACRAMENTO – Today, California Assemblymembers James Gallagher (R-Yuba City) and Kevin Kiley (R-Rocklin) announced that an Appellate Court has scheduled oral argument in their lawsuit challenging Governor Gavin Newsom’s abuse of emergency powers during the COVID-19 State of Emergency. The parties will appear before the 3rd District Court of Appeal in Sacramento on April 20 at 9:30 AM.

“California has not been well-served by one-man rule. We are asking the court of appeals to affirm the superior’s court’s decision and protect our representative government from the abuses of this or any future Governor,” said Assemblymembers Gallagher and Kiley.

On November 14th, a California State Superior Court finalized its ruling determining that Governor Gavin Newsom abused his authority by changing state law in violation of the California Constitution during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Assemblymembers’ lawsuit challenges the legality of Executive Order N-67-20 which changed several statutory laws overnight. Gallagher and Kiley contend that this was an unconstitutional act because it invaded the powers that are left to the Legislature alone. Newsom argued that a State of Emergency “centralizes the State’s powers in the hands of the

Governor.”Click here to read the final ruling issued in Sutter County Superior Court.

Assemblyman James Gallagher represents the 3rd Assembly District, which encompasses all of Glenn, Sutter, Tehama and Yuba counties as well as portions of Butte and Colusa counties.


Assemblyman Kevin Kiley represents the 6th Assembly District, which includes the Sacramento, Placer, and El Dorado County communities of Cameron Park, El Dorado Hills, Fair Oaks, Folsom, Granite Bay, Lincoln, Loomis, Orangevale, Penryn, Rocklin, Roseville, and Sheridan.

Almost as big of a waste of time & $$ as the futile Recall election. You know, the one only a year ahead of an actual election. As Scar so brilliantly said in Lion King, “I’m surrounded by idiots.”

Praise the lord Billy Bob!
Nothing more satanic than spending taxpayer dollars for a recall election of Governor Newsom who was elected for a four year term. Yes! Elected by the MAJORITY of California VOTERS. Do you know how much a Special Election cost the taxpayers? 80-100 Million
California will never be a red State.

RACHEL, This idiot governor is costing us way more than $100 MILLION! It’s costing us BILLIONS! Out with him and he can take Dianne Feinstein and Pelosi with him! California might very well become a RED STATE with so many bleeding heart liberals leaving the state and conservatives moving in. Just wait and see!
