Survey of 2013 Cases Under State Quality Review Act

, New York Law Journal


In his Environmental Law column, Michael B. Gerrard writes that 2013 was a miserable year for those bringing SEQRA cases. The courts issued 38 decisions, the third-lowest number since 1990, and in only one case that reached a final decision did plaintiffs prevail. Notably, ten of the decisions were dismissed because the plaintiffs were found to lack standing to sue.
