The California Supreme Court has granted review in two important cases dealing with water supply and planning under CEQA. The first, Vineyard Area Citizens for Responsible Growth v. City of Rancho Cordova (Case No. S132972) was covered in a June 2005 Abbott & Kindermann article. The second is In re Bay-Delta Programmatic Environmental Impact Report Coordinated Proceedings (Case No. S138975) and was discussed in a November 2005 Abbott & Kindermann article. The Supreme Court’s opinions in these cases will likely affect all participants in the EIR process and we will update you when they are issued.
