Hofman Ranch v. Yuba County Local Agency Formation Commission
The Third District Court of Appeal affirmed the lower court’s ruling and denied the petitioners’ Frances Hofman, Emma Hofman, and Hofman Ranch petition for writ of mandate asking the court to set aside all actions taken in a closed session meeting of the Yuba County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) and to enjoin all future closed session evaluations of independent contractors. Under the Ralph M. Brown Act, the court found that Yuba County LAFCO appropriately conducted the performance evaluation of an executive officer in closed session.
