We are very disappointed in the Federal District Court’s ruling today, but strengthened by the fact that the case has had wide-spread community support. We await Chief Judge Conway’s written opinion in this case, and will then consult with our clients and decide on the next appropriate steps and any possible appeal. This case made clear that Latinos in Orange County are unified in asserting their civil rights.
