City of Palm Beach Gardens prevails in Charter Amendment challenge brought by Sid Dinerstein.

In a legal battle to protect and defend the will of the City's voters R. Max Lohman successfully defended Ballot Question No. 3 from the March 2018 city-wide referendum. Ballot Question No. 3 provides that term limited City Council members must observe a one-term hiatus prior to being elected again. Dinerstein alleged that the subject ballot question was misleading and "flew under false colors." The City originally prevailed at trial, but Dinerstein appealed to the Fourth District Court of Appeal. Just two days after oral  argument the 4th DCA issued a Per Curiam Affirmed opinion, ruling in favor of the City.
