Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Court of Appeals' reversal of a trial court's denial of plaintiffs' mandamus petition seeking to prevent the closure of a private airport, holding that defendant-county's action amounted to a project requiring environmental review under CEQA, is reversed as: 1) declining to renew the conditional use permit was not a public project under CEQA because the county did not directly undertake to close the airport, but simply decided not to reauthorize a private activity that required a permit; and 2) as the airport operation was the project in question, projects rejected by a public agency are specifically exempted from CEQA requirements.
