e-Discovery California: AB 5 & May 19th – Collision Course?

J0387087 California has serious budget problems.  May 19th, five propositions, 1A through 1E, are on the ballot of a special election that will directly affect the future of the state (there's a sixth, 1F, but it isn't important for our purposes right now).

If they fail – and all indications are that they will – the state budget shortfall will reach $21.3 billion.  The legislature's Chief Budget Analyst says the state could be broke by July.

See why I'm worried?  This is exactly the same scenario that allowed Governor Schwarzenegger to veto AB 5 (in its previous rendition) the last time!

Will we see a repeat?  Governor, my advice;  please don't play politics with a much-needed set of regulations.
