CEQA from 1997-February 2012, Litigation History

According to research done by the Thomas Law Group on CEQA cases dated from 1997 – February 2012:

  • Regarding Court decisions addressing the adequacy of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR), the plaintiff won 49% of the time and the public agency won 51% of the time–amounting to little better odds than a coin toss.

 

  • Regarding Court decisions addressing the adequacy of a Negative Declaration, the plaintiff won 58% of the time and the public agency won 42% of the time.
