Home Rule Protection


  • Our client, a city, was seeking a declaration that a statute adopted by the Oregon Legislature, which gave the power to an individual citizen to withdraw from city limits, was unconstitutional.  


  • Jordan Ramis analyzed, advised, and pursued on behalf of the client, a successful claim to clarify and solidify the procedure and protection of Home Rule City Charter rights.  Jordan Ramis responded to various citizen initiatives to disincorporate the city or individually withdraw from the city limits.  


  • The city's claims that the recent legislation was unconstitutional were successful.
