Current Issue: To get Jack In The Box and the City of San Diego to ABIDE by the municipal code and to RESPECT the community – NO DRIVE THROUGH at the Upas and 30th St location. It’s about upholding the law! Read the Lawsuit HERE.

What’s Next?
In January, San Diego Superior Court judge Ronald Prager upheld the city’s late-filing argument and dismissed the suit without addressing the circumstances that led to the late filing.

WE WILL APPEAL THIS JUDGMENT! HELP US RAISE FUNDS AT GOFUNDME.COM/SUPPORTOURAPPEAL.

We demand that the city uphold the law!
