  • American Coatings Association, Inc. v. South Coast Air Quality District

    Posted July 2, 2012 By in Recent News With | No Comments

    NEW CASE UPDATE

    American Coatings Association, Inc. v. South Coast Air Quality District

    California Supreme Court Upholds Power of Regulatory Agencies to Require the Use of Technology that Does Not Exist Yet

    In the recent opinion of American Coatings Association, Inc. v. South Coast Air Quality District (June 25, 2012), the California Supreme Court addressed the question of whether California Air Quality regulators have the power to promulgate “technology forcing” regulations that require manufacturers to meet certain air quality standards using technology that does not yet exist.

    The Court held that air quality regulators did have power under the State’s Health & Safety Code to pass regulations that require the use of technology that does not currently exist so long as the regulatory body put forward evidence that it would be possible to meet the proposed air quality regulations with the new developing technologies by the effective date of the new regulation.

    The Court’s decision will likely encourage the passage of more technology forcing regulations by California regulators. California businesses will need to closely monitor the regulatory environment, and comment on proposed rulemaking to avoid the passage of technology forcing regulations that are unworkable or not feasible.

    Should you like more information on how Bergman Dacey Goldsmith can help your company respond to the ever changing regulatory environment in California, please contact Brian J. Bergman at (310) 470-6110 or bbergman@bdgfirm.com.

  • Are You Set Up to Protect Your CEQA Exempt Project?

    Posted June 15, 2012 By in Recent News With | No Comments

    New Case Update: Tomlinson v. County of Alameda – Are You Set Up to Protect Your CEQA Exempt Projects?

    In the recent opinion of Tomlinson v. County of Alameda (June 14, 2012) 2012 Cal. Lexis 5261, the California Supreme Court addressed the question of whether a party must exhaust administrative remedies before it may challenge a public entity’s decision that a project is exempt under the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”).

    The doctrine of exhaustion of administrative remedies requires that a party raise its concerns regarding a proposed project before the project is approved by the public entity. If a party does not raise its concerns before the project is approved, the party may be barred from raising its concerns in court.

    In Tomlinson, the California Supreme Court held that if a party was given an opportunity to raise its concerns about a proposed project considered exempt from CEQA at a public hearing prior to project approval then the doctrine of exhaustion of administrative remedies does apply.

    The Court’s decision is a major departure from the majority of prior appellate decisions that had held that a party does not need to exhaust their administrative remedies prior to challenging a public entity’s decision that a project is exempt. As such, it is likely that your entity does not have the proper procedures in place to take advantage of the protections afforded by the Tomlinson opinion.

    Should you like more information on how your entity can implement the holding in the Tomlinson decision to better protect your projects from CEQA challenges, please contact Brian J. Bergman at (310) 470-6110 or bbergman@bdgfirm.com.
