Government Accountability

Craig Sherman represents clients in matters related to government enforcement actions involving environmental, land use, government finance, tax initiatives, and bond expenditures.

Recently, Craig Sherman has been retained throughout the state for prosecuting cases involving government finance, taxing, and constitutional voting and spending requirements regarding bond expenditures. Craig Sherman has won several reported landmark cases for clients such as:

  • Taxpayers for Accountable School Bond Spending v. San Diego Unified School Dist., 215 Cal. App. 4th 1013
  • City of San Diego v. Shapiro, 228 Cal. App. 4th 756
  • Center for Local Government Accountability v. City of San Diego, 247 Cal. App. 4th 1146

The assistance of a professional like Craig Sherman can be the difference needed to hold government accountable and protecting your community. It is never too early to call for assistance in organizing a community, preparing for a public hearing, or taking the necessary steps to engage in litigation.

The statute of limitations (the time to file a lawsuit) is very short in these types of cases, and if you don’t take the correct action at the right time, you can be prevented from filing a suit at all. We recommend you do so as early as possible to avoid a loss of legal recourse and claims, or at least call and set an appointment to determine what your legal options are.
