Jamison v. Department of Transportation, 074880

In an action arising over a dispute between Caltrans' maintenance of an easement for State Route 49 and the impact on the fee holder's irrigation of his land, the trial court's grant of a preliminary injunction for plaintiff landowner is reversed where Code of Civil Procedure section 526, subd. (b)(4) prevents a trial court from enjoining the execution of a public statute by officers of the law for the public benefit, and the injunction permitting plaintiff to block a culvert draining water onto his land violated this statute.
