The pending annexation of Sunset Beach has taken another step back, as a court hearing scheduled for Wednesday was postponed.
Attorneys for Huntington Beach, the Orange County Local Agency Formation Commission and the Citizen's Assn. of Sunset Beach had planned to meet at 1:30 p.m. in Orange County Superior Court for a hearing after a judge temporarily halted the annexation of the beachside community in January.
According to Daniel Roberts, an attorney for the county commission, the hearing had been intended to address the city and county's response to the association's lawsuit and to set a future hearing date. The association, though, filed an amended petition in February that negated some of the points in the response.
