California Native Plant Soc'y v. City of Rancho Cordova, C057018
In an environmental action involving a residential and commercial development, trial court's judgment is reversed where: 1) the court did not err in determining defendant violated the Planning and Zoning Law when it approved the development project as defendant did not design mitigation for impacts of the project on special-status species as required; and 2) the trial court erred in finding defendant violated CEQA in its certification of the project environmental impact report and in the approval of the project as plaintiff failed to establish any such violation on which administrative remedies were exhausted.
