City of Sacramento v. State Water Resources Control Board

(1992) 2 Cal.App.4th 960

The Appellate Court determined that the California Department of Food and Agriculture (now the Department of Pesticide Regulation) was the appropriate Lead Agency in dealing with the annual formulation and approval of the Rice Pesticide Plans.   The Appellate Court defined the “project” requiring the preparation of an environmental impact analysis as the formulation, approval and implementation of the Rice Pesticide Plans.  I was lead counsel for this matter.
