The authority may sue and be sued in all courts of competent jurisdiction, except that the State of California does not consent to any suit filed against the authority in any federal court of the United States; provided, that the authority may, as a plaintiff, institute or, as an intervenor, intervene in any suit in any federal court of the United States.
The legislature occasionally skips outline levels.
(3) A person may apply [...]
(4)(a) A person petitioning for relief [...]
In this example, (3), (4),
and (4)(a) are all outline levels, but
omitted by its authors. It's only implied. This presents an
interesting challenge when laying out the text. We've
decided to display a blank section with this note, in order
to aide readability.
