Save Round Valley Alliance v. Inyo, County of

ELR Citation: 37 ELR 20310
Nos. No. E041364, (Cal. Ct. App., 12/17/2007)

A California appellate court reversed a lower court's denial of a petition for a writ of mandate, which challenged the certification of an environmental impact report (EIR) under the California Environmental Quality Act and the approval of a developer's tentative subdivision tract map in Inyo County. Where an EIR fails to adequately analyze a possible land exchange with the federal Bureau of Land Management as an alternative to a project involving potential impacts on an exceptional environmental area and landscape area, such EIR is inadequate.
