Appellate court rules against CCPOA

The First District Court of Appeal denied CCPOA's motion to dismiss Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's appeal of Alameda Judge Frank Roesch's decision in favor of the union. The denial, issued on Friday, means that the correctional officers and their supervisors that came under the ruling will remain on furlough.

Now the governor has 30 days as of Friday to file its appeal brief, CCPOA has to then file its opposition brief within 30 days of the governor's filing. Then the governor has 15 days after that to file a reply. At some point yet to be determined, the court will set a hearing date.
