The legal case against the Weldon Canyon landfill initiative will be argued before a judge in one month, giving the courts a chance to settle the matter before it goes to Ventura County voters in November. In a hearing Friday, retired Appeals Judge Richard W. Abbe rejected a move by landfill proponents to delay the decision until after the election. Instead, he set a court date for Aug. 22. "I believe this matter should go forward," Abbe said.
