Two-term Councilman Richard T. Polis sued the city Wednesday, four hours after the city clerk refused to accept his nomination papers to run for a third term. A voter-approved law enacted in 1982 limits council members to two consecutive terms. Polis filed the lawsuit in Orange County Superior Court to challenge the term limit. He is the first council member to try to run for a third term since the law has been in place, said City Manager Pamela Gibson, who also serves as city clerk.

A state appeals court will hear oral arguments today from the city of La Palma on why its ordinance limiting council members to two terms should be allowed. La Palma is defending its 10-year-old term-limit ordinance after a Superior Court judge ruled in July that the law violates the state Constitution. Councilman Richard Polis had sued the city in an effort to run for a third term on the council in the Nov. 3 election.

La Palma's 10-year-old law limiting City Council members to two terms in office is illegal, an Orange County Superior Court judge ruled Wednesday. Judge William F. Rylaarsdam said that a higher court ruled three years ago that cities bound by California general law may not limit the number of terms city council members may serve. John L. Fellows III, an attorney for La Palma, said he will file an immediate appeal.
