Bolsa Chica Group Applauds Court Ruling

With no media coverage or fanfare, Hearthside Homes' spurious "takings" lawsuit against the California Coastal Commission was finally tossed out of court last month for having no cause of action. This is a victory for the Coastal Commission that needs to be known in all circles.

Once again, the developers of the Bolsa Chica mesa had tried to use the courts to bully our environmental protection system and were beaten back by common sense and clear adherence to the intent and process of the California Coastal Act.

The Bolsa Chica Land Trust is proud to have been a partner with the stalwart Coastal Commission in defending the suit and once again is thrilled to be on the winning side.
