"AES has no grounds for a lawsuit against the City from Measure A, which simply rezones the land and does not take ownership or inflict “eminent domain” as the opposition falsely claims." (according to NoPowerPlant.com)
This is not true. While neither the City nor AES have any desire to get into a legal battle, if Measure A passes this is exactly what AES will be forced to do in order to protect their rights and the value of their property (just as any property owner with 50 acres of beachfront property would do). They have strong legal arguments that Measure A violates private property rights, and they do not need to wait until 2020 to file a legal challenge as some have suggested. It can be done immediately. City leaders agree this could happen. Mayor Gin and 4 out of 5 Redondo Beach City Council members oppose Measure A and they cite violation of private property rights and potential lawsuit costs as reasons. Measure A is not the answer.
