SAVE PETALUMA, Petitioner, v. CITY OF PETALUMA, Respondent;
SAFEWAY, INC., and DOES 1-20, Real Party in Interest.
The brief summary:
Safeway can’t tear down the building.
We have a case and get to move forward to hopefully get an Environmental Impact Report!
Here’s the ruling, if you’d like to read it. We’ve highlighted some interesting bits, if you just want to skim it.
Tentative Ruling as of October 10th, 2019
On Wednesday, Judge Wick provided a Tentative Ruling. After yesterday, we are very hopeful his thoughtful and detailed report will reap the same results. We also hope that Judge Wick will post his Ruling soon, as Safeway has said they may begin demolition as soon as next week. Please keep your fingers crossed that all goes well. Remember, the Judge’s Ruling isn’t the end. It simply means we have a case and Safeway can’t begin work. There is more work ahead of us.
Here is the Tentative Ruling with our own additional highlights to make it easier for all of us non-lawyers to follow.
