Calif. HSRA settles case for $5M

Posted on April 24, 2013

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California High-Speed Rail Authority will provide $4 million for an agriculture preservation fund to resolve claims that part of its $86 billion project could violate state environment law, Bloomberg reported. According to documents filed in state court in Sacramento, the authority will also pay about $1 million in attorneys’ fees to county farm bureaus and other groups that sued.

The accord resolves a lawsuit challenging the authority’s approval of environmental impact reports for a section of the planned railway that will cut though farmland in two counties of central California. For the full story, click here.
