Rob Rogers reports:

Novato Taxi owner Dan Carlson says he’s ready to battle county and Novato officials in court Monday for the right to keep his employees’ drug test results private.

“We didn’t get the ruling we wanted (Friday), so we’re going to pursue this again,” said Carlson, whose company has been closed since June after operating for 22 years.

On Friday, Marin Superior Court Judge James Ritchie refused to dismiss an injunction against Carlson by the Marin General Services Authority, a joint powers alliance of city managers and public works directors that regulates abandoned vehicles, street lights and taxi services.

Carlson, with the support of the American Civil Liberties Union and the state Office of Legislative Counsel, has argued that the authority’s request violates California law.
