Lawsuit filed over misleading ballot language on hotel tax hike measure

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Attorney Corey Briggs has filed a lawsuit saying that the measure to raise the hotel tax in order to expand the convention center is misleading, biased and in violation of state election law.

This is happening just days before the city clerk is scheduled to send ballot materials to the registrar to be printed for the March 3rd primary election.

This is the second legal complaint filed against this initiative’s language which was signed off by City Attorney Mara Elliott. It was filed by a voter from San Diego Alliance who claims, among other issues, the language favors a yes vote.

Former Superior Court Judge and City Attorney Jan Goldsmith was in studio to discuss the lawsuit.
