Arreola v. Monterey County,
The Sixth Appellate District affirmed the judgment of the Monterey Superior Court holding county and state governments liable in inverse condemnation for damage to private property caused by flood-waters released as a result of counties' negligent maintenance of the Pajaro River Levee Project and state's negligent construction of Highway 1. The defendants were also liable for nuisance and maintaining a dangerous condition on public property.
