Litigation.jpgAdams Broadwell Joseph & Cardozo represents labor organizations, public interest groups and individuals in both state and federal court litigation. The firm regularly enforces CEQA in state court proceedings. As a result of litigation brought by the firm over the last forty years, the courts have firmly established that new building standards resulting in potentially significant health, safety or environmental impacts must be reviewed under CEQA prior to approval. ABJC has also prevailed in a number of cases protecting air quality, public health and the environment, including Communities for a Better Environment v. South Coast Air Quality Management District (2010) 48 Cal.4th 310, the California Supreme Court case establishing the appropriate baseline for environmental review under CEQA.
