Friant Ranch Specific Plan (Fresno County)
Since 2011, Jim Moose and Tiffany Wright have represented Friant Ranch LP, proponents of the Friant Ranch Specific Plan, in three CEQA lawsuits over the EIR for that project. After vigorously defending the cases in the trial court, Mr. Moose and Ms. Wright helped their client settle two of the three cases. The third lawsuit resulted in a 2018 decision by the California Supreme Court, Sierra Club v. County of Fresno, which requires that air quality analyses in EIRs attempt to substantively connect air quality impacts to likely health consequences. Mr. Moose and Ms. Wright continue to represent Friant Ranch, LP, on remand from the Supreme Court.
