Default Ward Connerly Files Suit In Sac For Enforcement Of Prop 209

Ward Connerly defends prop 209. He wants the court to order the rdistricting commission to withdraw all of the race criteria they set for choosing redistricting committee members,

1. This action challenges, on its face, Govemment Code section 8252(g) as violating
Article I, section 31, of the Califomia Constitution. In 1996, the people of California adopted
Proposition 209, adding Section 31 to the state constitution. In adopting this historic initiative, the
people of Califomia mandated that race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin can no longer be
a factor in deciding who should and who should not receive the benefit of being appointed to state
boards and commissions. Nevertheless, in selecting the final six members to the Citizens
Redistricting Commission, Govemment Code section 8252(g) requires the first eight members of
the Commission to grant preferential treatment to applicants on the basis of race, ethnicity, and
gender, and accordingly, to discriminate against other applicants on the same basis. (For the sake
of clarity, herein Plaintiffs use the term "sex" to include both the term "sex" and "gender;" the
former being the operative word in Section 31 and the latter being the word used by Govemment
Code section 8252(g).
