Falling more into the category of “spring cleaning” than “breaking news,” readers should note that a Second District decision, published last spring and covered in this blog, was ordered depublished by the California Supreme Court late last summer.

On August 19, 2020, the Supreme Court denied review and ordered not to be officially published the opinion in Communities for a Better Environment v. South Coast Air Quality Management District, which was filed on April 7, 2020, and formerly published at 47 Cal.App.5th 588; my April 21, 2020 post on the case can be found here.  The Supreme Court’s action renders the decision uncitable as precedent, although it remains binding on the parties.
