I think that's a subset - but the subset would include Los Angeles, San Francisco and probably Santa Clara, so it would cover around 1/3 of the population of the state.

I do think some of the returns from winning one or more of the cases ought to be spent on battlespace preparation in those large counties, such as 'Your city/county is cutting cops and garbage collectors and libraries, but they want to spend millions in court to lose, just like [losing county]. Demand that your supervisors not waste money!'
