ARCADIA, CA – Two lawsuits challenging the appointment of an Arcadia City Councilmember and the adopted City 
Council District Map were resolved yesterday. The Settlement Agreement between the City and the petitioners ends a six-
month legal battle that challenged the validity of Councilmember Michael Danielson’s appointment in March 2022 and the 
City Council Redistricting Map, adopted in April 2022. 
Judge Mary Strobel of the Los Angeles County Superior Court found on October 4, 2022, that the appointment of Councilmember 
Danielson was lawful, and a judgment was entered in favor of the City. Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, 
the Plaintiffs in this lawsuit will not appeal the judgement in the City’s favor. In return, the City has agreed not to pursue 
recovery of its court costs. 
The petitioners challenging the City, the HQH Chinese American Equalization Association and Arcadia Voters’ Rights 
Group, first sued the City of Arcadia and the City Council in May 2022. The litigation sought to invalidate the appointment 
of Councilmember Danielson, and therefore, overturn the City’s District Map approved during his appointment. Pursuant 
to the same Settlement Agreement, this litigation was dismissed by order of the Court prior to a hearing. 
In response to the satisfactory resolution of these lawsuits, Mayor Tom Beck said, “We are pleased to have successfully resolved 
these two legal matters, and the City’s recent litigation concerning Councilmember term limits, in our favor. We are 
now focused on welcoming the newly elected City Councilmembers on December 6, 2022, and the historic representation 
they bring to the Council.”
