Mission Viejo: Election Lawsuit Has ‘No Merit’

The city of Mission Viejo said May 12 it is prepared to defend its recent move toward district-based elections in court, saying a lawsuit filed against the city regarding the change has “no merit.”
Last month, Mission Viejo resident Michael Schlesinger filed the suit alleging all five of its city council seats should be up for election in November due to a 2018 lawsuit settlement in which the city agreed to change its voting model to cumulative voting, where voters would cast up to five ballots for the city’s five council seats.
That new voting model was to have started in 2020. But after having difficulty getting approval from the state to implement it, the date was pushed to 2022.
