More again on California groundwater

September 11, 2014 | By DAMIEN SCHIFF

Last week we noted the filing of our amicus letter on behalf of the California Farm Bureau Federation, to support Siskiyou County’s request for the California Supreme Court to review immediately the trial court’s decision extending the public trust doctrine to groundwater extraction.  Shortly thereafter, the Real Party in Interest environmental parties filed their response, agreeing with the County that the Supreme Court should hear the appeal now.  That’s a good sign that the Court may very well take up the case.
