Measure H parcel tax lawsuit in settlement talks
ALAMEDA, California: After Alameda Unified School District parcel tax, Measure H (June 2008) was narrowly approved in June 2008, two lawsuits were filed against it.
Attorneys for AUSD and the plaintiffs in the lawsuits said in August 2009 that they are in settlement talks. One outcome of a possible settlement is that Measure H would be revoked, and a substitute measure would go on the June 2010 ballot.
The case is being closely watched since a primary basis for the lawsuit is that Measure H imposes a different tax on different types of property.
