Sierra Club et al. v. Kern County  

Author:  | California, Wildlife

SIERRA CLUB, CENTER FOR BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY and DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE (Petitioners and Plaintiffs will collectively be referred to as “Petitioners) petition this Court for a Writ of Mandate and Order under Code of Civil Procedure § 1094.5 and § 1085 and Public Resources Code §21168.5, directed to Respondents, COUNTY OF KERN and KERN COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, (collectively “Respondent” or “County”), setting aside Respondents’ certification of a Final Environmental Impact Report (“EIR”) that was prepared in conjunction with various actions and ultimate approval of North Sky River and Jawbone Wind Energy Projects (“Project”). Petitioners also seek an order directing the County to set aside all project approvals, resolutions, ordinances and findings and not to reconsider the project until and unless a legally adequate EIR is prepared and certified consistent with the mandates of the California Environmental Quality Act, otherwise referred to as CEQA, Through this action, Petitioners also seek a judicial declaration indicating that the County’s certification of the EIR and approval of the Project was unlawful. …

Petitioners are collectively opposed to this particular wind energy project … because of its unacceptable and inadequately mitigated impact on an important avian migratory corridor, and sensitive and protected bat and avian species, including the majestic Golden eagle and the extremely rare California condor.
