Page 6, Sec. 1 Disputed Land Case Will Go To Court Soon LA VERNE The City Council voted last night to annex land to the east and north, part of which is claimed by Pomona. The action came after a public hearing on the annexation at which protests were received from owners of 29 li per cent of the total assessed valuation of the property in the annexation district.

Legally, an annexation district is considered uninhabited if fewer than 12 registered voters live there. The case now goes to court.

Lewis of La Verne said last night after the meeting that Lowery would be filing a petition for a restraining order against Pomona within a few days. The protests received last night were from the Capital Co., owner of three parcels of land in the proposed annexation, and from Gerald Laws and Jack Campbell, co-owners of one parcel. The proests represented $17,050 assessed valuation. The total valuation of the area, known as Annexation District No. 6, is $57,790.
