Attorney Thomas Willis, representing the state Legislature, right,  argues against a request by civil rights attorney Molly Munger, to to stop top state officials from giving Gov. Jerry Brown's proposed tax initiative top billing on the November ballot, in Sacramento Superior Court  Monday, July 9, 2012. Munger, who is bankrolling a tax campaign to raise income taxes to fund pubic schools, sued last week after Brown signed a bill moving bond measures and constitutional amendments to the top of the ballot.  Superior Court Judge Michael Kenny denied the request to stop the secretary of state from placing the governors initiative first.
