Judge Drops Contempt Proceedings Against Governor

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — A Sacramento judge has dropped contempt proceedings against Governor Schwarzenegger.

Superior Court Judge Judy Hersher says the governor´s reissuing of regulations delaying tougher nurse staffing standards in hospitals was not a willful attempt to violate a court order.

Hersher says she accepts statements from the governor´s attorneys that administration officials believed that reissuing the regulations would not violate an injunction knocking down the rules.

The regulations suspend, until 2008, a requirement that hospitals have at least one nurse for every five patients, instead of one nurse for every six patients, in general medical units.
