Federal Court Upholds Solar Farm Permit

The Firm represented the Clark County, Nevada Department of Aviation in successful defense of permits for a large scale solar facility in the County. In Defenders of Wildlife v. Jewell, No. CV 14-1656-MWF (C.D. Cal. Mar. 30, 2015), the federal district court for the Central District of California cited the policy goals underlying development of alternative energy and the land use expertise of local governments in upholding the permits, which were challenged under the Endangered Species Act and NEPA.
