Board of Supervisors clarifies injunctions
When San Bernardino County appointed a supervisor, the Supreme Court had to step in.
After the 2018 resignation of Supervisor James Ramos, who was elected to serve in the state legislature, the Board of Supervisors nominated their top applicant picks for interviews by email.
The Board limited the 48 applicants to 13 interviews through their nomination process, and selected Dawn Rowe out of the 13 interviewees to be appointed as Supervisor.
Michael Gomez Daly sued with his civic organization Inland Empire United, claiming the nomination violated the Brown Act, which requires bodies to hold open meetings.
