Judge Dismisses Lawsuits Filed By Save Our Library

bookpicA Los Angeles County Superior Court judge has dismissed the two lawsuits filed by Save Our Library against the City of Santa Clarita.  

The lawsuits alleged misconduct on the City’s part in contracting with Library System and Services (LSSI) to manage the Santa Clarita Public Library, due to open July 1.

One of the lawsuits accused the City of breaching the California Education Code by paying LSSI before establishing a board of library trustees. Judge Barbara Scheper dismissed this allegation on technical and procedural grounds.

“The court did not reach the issue of whether only a Board of Trustees could (if anyone can) contract with LSSI and otherwise control and manage the Santa Clarita Public Library,” said Save Our Library attorney Don Ricketts in a statement. 

As part of her ruling, Scheper will not allow an amended complaint to that cause of action.  

The City Council has still not appointed a board of library trustees.  

Regarding the other lawsuit, Scheper upheld her previous ruling that LSSI, a private company, could have access to library patrons’ information.  

The only cause of action that remains alive is the allegation that the City did not produce all records in response to the Public Records Act requests that were made, Ricketts said.  

Earlier this month, Ricketts voluntarily dismissed a third lawsuit, which alleged that City staff and the City Council violated the Brown Act by reaching a decision to contract with LSSI before holding a public meeting.  

On Monday, Ricketts did not confirm or deny that he would take further action.
