Quantification Settlement Agreement: update on the federal lawsuit
Posted by George J Janczyn on May 25, 2010
Imperial County’s complaint against the U.S. government challenging the Quantification Settlement Agreement (QSA) was heard on May 14 at an Early Neutral Evaluation Conference at the U.S. Courthouse in El Centro.
At the conference, as was probably expected, the parties were unable to reach a settlement. Judge Peter C. Lewis then ruled that the case was appropriate for review and ordered the defendants to file an administrative record by September 10 and scheduled a case management conference to be held October 8, 2010, again at the U.S. Courthouse in El Centro.
