Last week, the California Supreme Court issued a grant-and-hold-order in the pension case of Marin Association of Public Employees v. Marin County Employees’ Retirement Association (S237460). The court has decided to wait for a decision in the appeal of an Alameda County-centric case – a different pension case — Alameda County Deputy Sheriff’s Association v. Alameda County Employees’ Retirement Association (A141913) or “pending further order of the court.”
Six of the briefs for the Alameda County case are available for reading and downloading at Alameda County Law Library on our public computers through our access to the California Public Law Library Briefs Service. Four of the documents filed in the Marin Association case are also available on the database. Visit the Reference Desk in Oakland or Hayward for help with accessing the briefs. ACLL is one of the select California county law libraries having access to this resource.
There is a delay in the upload of the text of California appellate briefs to the free database. You can call the Oakland Reference Desk at 510-208-4832 to check on availability before making a trip to the library.
An information discussion of the procedural aspects of the not frequently used grant-and-hold order can be found on the At the Lectern blog in a post – “Supreme Court Case on Hold for Court of Appeal Decision in Another Case.”
