Signal Timing - Yellow
The evidence shows that they were well aware of the new law prescribing minimum yellow times (SB 667, codified as VC 21455.7, effective Jan. 1, 2002), but failed to bring their cameras into compliance with it.
The police were aware of it. During the October 2002 trial of an August 2002 Sepulveda / Green Valley violation, there was the following testimony:

I then went to the League's website and reviewed "Priority Focus" for 2001, and found that SB 667 was mentioned in at least six editions, sometimes as a Hot Bill.
The "Priority Focus" description of SB 667 was short and and to the point (like VC 21455.7 itself).
