City of Irvine v. County of Orange, G047895

The trial court properly denied plaintiff-city's petition to set aside defendant-county's decision to approve and submit an application for state funding to expand one of defendant-county's jail facilities, where: 1) defendant-county's application did not constitute a project approval under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) because it did not commit defendant-county to a definite course of action regarding the expansion of its jail facilities; and 2) the state's process did not require the defendant-county to initiate a CEQA review of its expansion plans until after defendant-county submitted its application and received conditional approval to fund the project.
