California Government Code

Sec. § 99020


(a)

The authority may bring an action to determine the validity of any bonds to be issued, or ancillary obligations and other contracts to be entered into, under this title pursuant to Chapter 9 (commencing with Section 860) of Title 10 of Part 2 of the Code of Civil Procedure. For the purposes of Section 860 of the Code of Civil Procedure, any action initiated pursuant to this section shall be brought in the Superior Court in the County of Sacramento.

(b)

Any action brought to enforce any provision of this title shall be brought in the Superior Court in the County of Sacramento and shall have priority over civil matters not themselves having priority.

(c)

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the exclusive means to obtain review of a superior court judgment entered in an action brought pursuant to Chapter 9 (commencing with Section 860) of Title 10 of Part 2 of the Code of Civil Procedure to determine the validity of any bonds to be issued, or ancillary obligations or other contracts to be entered into, under this title shall be by petition to the Supreme Court for writ of review. Any such petition shall be filed within 15 days following the notice of entry of the superior court judgment, and no extension of that period may be allowed. If no petition is filed within the time allowed therefor, or the petition is denied, with or without opinion, the decision of the superior court shall be final and enforceable as provided in subdivision (a) of Section 870 of the Code of Civil Procedure. In any case in which a petition has been filed within the time allowed therefor, the Supreme Court shall make any orders it deems proper in the circumstances. If no answering party appeared in the superior court action, the only issues that may be raised in the petition are those related to the jurisdiction of the superior court.
