Litigation

PA.Litig.jpgABJC is experienced in both state and federal court  litigation, with a particular focus on CEQA enforcement in state court proceedings. As a result of litigation brought by the firm over the last twenty years, the courts have now clearly established that proposed building standards that may cause impacts to public health, safety or the environment must be reviewed under CEQA prior to approval. The firm also recently prevailed in the California Supreme Court case establishing the appropriate baseline for environmental review under CEQA, representing the union petitioners in the case consolidated with Communities for a Better Environment v. South Coast Air Quality Management District.
