The California Supreme Court and the Courts of Appeal issued 50 published and unpublished opinions on the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) in 2022. We review these cases in our forthcoming “CEQA Case Report: Understanding the Judicial Landscape for Development.”

Our annual comprehensive report summarizes California’s judicial opinions relating to CEQA from the previous year and analyzes key trends affecting development in the state. We recently previewed the CEQA Case Report in an in-depth webcast.
