A Superior Court judge today denied a motion to prevent government officials from taking action to alter a state trust to potentially allow seals to remain at the Children’s Pool in La Jolla.

City Council members voted 7-1 on Tuesday to support state legislation amending the 1931 trust governing the area to add a seal habitat as a permitted use, something the courts have ruled is not allowed under the current guidelines.

Attorney Paul Kennerson, who represents the plaintiff in that lawsuit, has said such a move would exceed state and city authority and filed a motion seeking a temporary restraining order. The judge denied the request, but a court hearing is scheduled for next month to determine whether to grant a permanent restraining order.
