Miller Starr Regalia Files Neutral “CEQA-in-Reverse” Case Amici Brief in California Supreme Court on Behalf of League of California Cities and Several Counties


On April 16, 2014, Miller Starr Regalia filed in the California Supreme Court a “neutral” amici brief – one in support of neither party – addressing the important “CEQA-in-reverse” issue presented in California Building Industry Association v. Bay Area Air Quality Management District, California Supreme Court, Case No. S213478. The brief was filed on behalf of Amici Curiae League of California Cities and the Counties of Tulare, Kings, and Solano. Cities and counties frequently serve as lead agencies with respect to proposed projects under CEQA. The League and the three counties identified the question presented in the case as having statewide significance.

The Amici brief (authored by myself and Matt Henderson) can be accessed at the League of California Cities’ website here .
