Filing Date Type File Action Taken Summary 02/01/2021 Motion to Intervene Download Motion for leave to intervene filed by People of the State of California ex rel. Xavier Becerra. California Attorney General Sought to Intervene to Oppose Residential Project in Area Vulnerable to Wildfire. The California Attorney General filed a motion to intervene on behalf of the People of the State of California in a lawsuit challenging a residential and resort development in Lake County that the Attorney General argued would result in adverse environmental effects that could affect the public generally. In the case challenging a proposed residential and resort development in Lake County, the petition attached to the attorney general’s motion alleged that the project would be located in an area where the “frequency, scale, and severity of … wildfires has increased in recent years, exacerbated by climate change and by high-risk development and human activity encroaching into the wildland-urban interface.” The petition also alleged that the environmental impact report for the project failed to adequately analyze and disclose the direct, indirect, and cumulative impacts of the Project on greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.
