Wednesday, six agencies joined in the legal battle between Golden State Water Company (GSWC) and the Casitas Municipal Water District (CMWD) and Ojai Friends of Locally Owned Water.
The Association of California Water Agencies ("ACWA"), the League of California Cities ("League"), the California State Association of Counties ("CSAC") and the California Special Districts Association ("CSDA") jointly applied for permission to file a 30-page amici curiae brief supporting CMWD in the case.
The Park Water Company and the California Water Association filed briefs in support of GSWC.
A panel of judges from the Second Appellate District Court in the California Court of Appeal’s Division Six will decide whether to allow the briefs before scheduling oral arguments in the appeal.
