"Today's decision will result in a less accurate Census--unduly predicated on guesswork, rather than actual counting--with fair political representation and crucial federal funding at risk for cities like Los Angeles," said Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer. "While we're disappointed, our fight is not over. The stakes are too high for the matter to end here."
Feuer and a national coalition sued the Administration in August over its last-minute decision to compress 8.5 months of data collection and processing into just 4.5 months. This four-month reduction would make it impossible to count every person – both in the City and across the nation.
