Court rules Gov. Schwarzenegger to implement furloughs

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger scored a victory Thursday over state Controller John Chiang when a Sacramento Superior Court judge ruled the governor has authority to implement furloughs and that Chiang must adjust pay accordingly.

The Democratic controller said last week in a legal filing that he sided with state worker unions and would refuse to implement the governor’s furloughs without a court order.

Superior Court Judge Patrick Marlette wrote Thursday that the court would in fact provide that order with its ruling. Chiang’s office was unavailable initially Thursday, but if he abides by his statement, he’ll carry out the furloughs.
