And we called it perfectly! Last week when the city of San Diego refused to repeal their Sex Offender Residence Restriction, we presumed that Attorney Janice Bellucci would be printing off a complaint within minutes… and she was.
Yesterday, she filed a lawsuit in Federal Court against the City challenging the constitutionality of the SORR. The State Supreme Court had already ruled SORRs unconstitutional and Ms. Bellucci has already sued 26 Municipalities in that State, but unfortunately the San Diego City Council was comprised of political cowards, who would rather take a lawsuit costing their taxpayers thousands, than be the ones to absorb the political backlash.
It’s alright. The legal fees that stand to be recovered can be applied to other challenges and we’re sure Janice and ACSOL will be happy to take the fuel to add to their freight train!
