In April, the Alameda Unified School District filed a petition for the California Supreme Court to review an appellate court ruling that would have the district refund millions of dollars in tax revenue collected from commercial property owners under Meaure H, a parcel tax approved by voters in 2008.

The court docket shows that attorney Sue Ann Salmon Evans, representing the school district, filed the petition for review on April 15th. On May 6th, attorney David Brillant, who represented the plaintiffs in the original lawsuit, Borikas v. Alameda Unified School District, filed a reply.

On May 16th, the school district’s attorney’s filed an answer to Brillant’s reply.

The case number is S209992 in the California Supreme Court.

In March, a Berkeley Law School professor told Action Alameda News that it’s unlikely that the Supreme Court would review the case, as the court accepts only 4 percent of petitions for review, and the case was reviewed by the appellate court twice, and certified for publication by the court.

A bill intended to save the school district in the case, AB59, introduced by Assemblymember Rob Bonta, who lives in, and represents, Alameda, has sat idle since it’s introduction in January.
