San Bernardino County ballot initiative Measure Z, which would have repealed a tax that brings in $42.7 annually to firefighters if approved, was blocked from the June 7 ballot by San Bernardino Superior Judge David Cohn March 28.
Cohn ruled that the Measure Z campaign violated California law by containing false and misleading information.
Measure Z’s proponents appealed March 30.
The Fourth District Court of Appeal, Division Two, stayed Cohn’s decision until they rule on the appeal.
The Red Brennan Group, the funder behind Measure Z, has not responded to calls for comment.
