Every year, we publish a comprehensive summary of California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) judicial opinions and provide analysis of the key trends affecting development in California.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the California Court of Appeal issued 52 published and unpublished CEQA opinions last year, which we review in the forthcoming “CEQA Case Report: Understanding the Judicial Landscape for Development.”

We recently previewed the CEQA Case Report and highlighted the key CEQA cases and trends from 2021 in an in-depth webcast.

Watch a recording of 2021 CEQA Year in Review, and please contact us with any questions you might have about these developments.
