North Pacifica LLC v. California Coastal Comm'n, B199446

In a case challenging denial of an application to construct a residential development on coastal property, denial of declaratory relief prohibiting the defendant from holding a hearing on the application is affirmed where: 1) defendant's good faith effort to notify interested persons and the public about the date, location, and purpose of the hearing substantially complied with the Bagley-Keene Act despite a failure to satisfy the ten day advance notice requirement; 2) any technical violation of the Bagley-Keene Act did not prejudice plaintiff; and 3) California Code of Regulations title 14 section 13063(a), which also requires ten days prior notice of a permit hearing, does not provide a nullification remedy.
