Madrigal v. City of Huntington Beach, G036991

Denial of petition for writ of mandate challenging issuance of grading permit is affirmed as the permit was consistent with a conditional use permit, and plaintiffs did not meet the burden on appeal of proving that the issuance of the grading permit was discretionary, rather than ministerial, or that it was not otherwise exempt from CEQA.
