Climate Action Campaign v. City of San Diego
Filing Date Type File Action Taken Summary 09/12/2022 Petition for Writ of Mandate Download Verified petition for writ of mandate filed. Organizations Challenged San Diego’s “Aspirational” Climate Action Plan. Two non-profit organizations asked a California Superior Court to vacate the City of San Diego’s approvals of the City’s 2022 Climate Action Plan, which they alleged was “truly an aspirational policy document” that “does not include the detail or mechanisms to ensure its success.” The organizations alleged that the City failed to comply with the California Environmental Quality Act, including because the City failed to adequately analyze or mitigate significant impacts and failed to specify criteria or standards to ensure the Climate Action Plan’s emission reductions would be achieved.
