Imperial Valley Press - - FRONT PAGE -

Groups of lawyers and ac­tivists filed Wed­nes­day a law­suit against Gov. Fran­cisco Vega and law­mak­ers.

The plain­tiffs say of­fi­cials vi­o­lated sev­eral lo­cal laws re­lated to a pri­vate-pub­lic part­ner­ship, re­ported La Crónica news­pa­per.

Lawyers Fer­nando Ros­ales and Ale­jan­dro Rivera said de­fen­dants in­cluded in the law­suit are Sec­re­tary of Govern­ment Fran­cisco Rueda and Sec­re­tary of In­fra­struc­ture and Ur­ban De­vel­op­ment Manuel Gue­vara.

Ros­ales told the news­pa­per the elected and ap­pointed of­fi­cials ap­proved an agree­ment be­fore a leg­isla­tive vote was made.

Mem­bers of Mex­i­cali Re­siste, 85 lawyers and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of two other ac­tivist groups are among the group lead­ing the al­le­ga­tions.

Ros­ales asked As­sis­tant At­tor­ney Gen­eral in Mex­i­cali Fer­nando Ramírez to call de­fen­dants to a hear­ing within two days af­ter the law­suit was filed.

In a press re­lease the state said the law­suit will be han­dled by its le­gal team.

“The al­le­ga­tions have been ad­dressed ap­pro­pri­ately,” the state said.

On Thurs­day dozens of po­lice of­fi­cers blocked pro­tes­tors from en­ter­ing the Leg­isla­tive Build­ing.
