REFERENDUM PETITION TO OVERTURN AMENDMENTS TO JUDICIAL SUMMARY JUDGMENT PROCEDURE. If signed by required number of electors and timely filed with Secretary of State, this petition will prevent implementation of Section 5, Chapter 488, Statutes of 2002, previously approved by Legislature and Governor, unless and until approved by a majority of voters. Section 5 increases notice to 75-days when a litigant seeks summary adjudication upon undisputed facts and entitlement under law; allows opponent expedited request for more time to discover facts defeating adjudication; requires further argument before appellate court may affirm summary adjudication on different grounds than trial court. .
