Court date set for recall writ
April 9, 2013 — Tom Hammond, the south county proponent seeking to force the Lassen County Clerk to move forward with the effort to recall Lassen County District 5 Supervisor Jack Hanson, will finally have his day in court.
“This very important dispute is the exact type of matter our founders considered when setting up our government,” wrote Stephen King, Hammond’s attorney. “We have three co-equal branches of government. Petitioner is asking the judicial branch to limit the power of the executive branch to disenfranchise its citizens. It’s as simple as that.”
