Judge: Amendment C Challenge Lawsuit Not Properly Served

(Minnehaha, SD) — A Minnehaha County judge says the South Dakota Attorney General’s office must be served in person for a lawsuit advocating the removal of a ballot measure to proceed. Attorneys for Harrisburg schools Superintendent Jim Holdback and South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Energy President David Owen were unsuccessful yesterday in arguing that their service of the lawsuit by certified mail should be accepted. An assistant attorney general argued the office was within its rights to require that the lawsuit be served in person and the judge agreed. Amendment C would require that any future ballot measures that raise taxes or spend ten million dollars over five years to be approved by 60-percent of voters.
