On Aug 14, 2019, attorneys representing the City of Damascus filed a petition with the Oregon Supreme Court to review (to challenge) the legality and constitutionality of the recent SSB 226, which became law under the Governor’s signature on July 15. It is now known as part of statutory law, Chapter 545, Sec 4. This new law seeks to validate retrospectively the disincorporation vote of 2016, and disregards the Appellate Court decision of May 1, 2019, which nullified the vote.

The petitioners are the City of Damascus, and individuals James B. De Young, Mayor, and Councilors Jeanne Robinson, Mark Fitz, and William Wehr, Council President. This review is authorized by Section 4 of the 2019 Act.
