Backcountry Against Dumps v Abbott

United States District Court, E.D. California. CIV. S-10-394 FCD/KJN, June 8, 2010: The court granted the power company’s motion for transfer of venue of this transmission line case to the Southern District of California from the Eastern District because “there is little, if any, nexus between the claims alleged and the Eastern District” and “very substantial connections with the parties, the documents, the lands, and the resources at issue in the litigation exist with the Southern District”. This action concerns the Bureau of Land Management’s approval of the Eastern San Diego County Resource Management Plan, along with an amendment to that plan, and approval of rights-of-way to construct and operate the Sunrise Powerlink Transmission Line Project , which is designed to deliver electricity to the San Diego area from renewable energy sources generated in San Diego and Imperial Counties.
