Supremes deny review in Coastal Commission case
Author: Paul Beard II
Yesterday, the California Supreme Court denied our petition for review in Citizens for a Better Eureka v. California Coastal Commission.
The case challenged the California Coastal Commission’s power to stop a locally approved clean-up effort on contaminated property in Eureka, California. PLF represented Citizens for a Better Eureka, a group of citizens who want the property cleaned up right away, without the Commission’s costly and time-consuming interference. The Court of Appeal ruled that the Commission had jurisdiction to second guess the city’s clean-up permit.
