The Kings County Board Of Supervisors voted this week not to appeal a Sacramento judge’s decision on its high-speed rail lawsuit.

Superior Court Judge Michael Kenny ruled against Kings County in March, rejecting the claim by opponents that the authority’s plans for the bullet train system violate state law. Speculation was that the county would appeal the ruling to a state appellate court, arguing that the California High-Speed Rail Authority violated provisions of Proposition 1A. But that appeal was not to be.

County Counsel Colleen Carlson said the supervisors’ will release a statement soon. Board Chair Doug Verboon has pointed out that as a result of the lawsuit, the authority will have to be accountable.
