Assemblyman Curt Pringle (D-Garden Grove) won a partial victory that will permit him to resume fund raising to pay for his defense in a lawsuit filed by the Hispanic Political Council. Superior Court Judge Dzintra Janavs overturned part of a ruling by the state Fair Political Practices Commission that said money raised by Pringle for the suit was subject to a new state law that prohibits raising money in a year when a candidate's name is not on a ballot.

Assemblyman Curt Pringle (R-Garden Grove) has won a partial victory in his suit against the state Fair Political Practices Commission, allowing him to resume fund raising for his legal defense fund. Superior Court Judge Dzintra Janavs on Monday overturned the FPPC's ruling that said money for Pringle's defense was subject to provisions of Proposition 68--passed by voters in November--which prohibits raising money in a year when a candidate's name is not on any ballot.

A massive voter registration drive in Orange County's Latino community that was to be launched last December with money from the settlement of a civil rights lawsuit against a local assemblyman and Republican Party officials has never materialized. Now, with less than 10 weeks left before the registration deadline for the Nov. 6 election, some Democratic and Latino leaders fear they are missing an opportunity to enlist as many as 30,000 new voters.

A lawsuit was filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana on behalf of five Santa Ana Latinos, who said they were harassed and intimidated by uniformed security guards as they voted last Election Day. The suit, which was announced earlier this week, asks the court to overturn the results of the hotly contested 72nd Assembly District race won by Republican Curt Pringle by just 867 votes.
