County of San Diego v. Grossmont-Cuyamaca Cmty. Coll. Dist., D046728

A county's petition for writ of mandate challenging a community college district's decisions and actions in connection with a construction project is granted where: 1) the district prejudicially abused its discretion by certifying a final EIR, adopting a statement of overriding considerations with CEQA findings, and approving a master plan without adopting feasible measures to mitigate certain adverse off-campus traffic impacts; and 2) the district's claim of economic infeasibility was not supported by substantial evidence.
