Bay Institute of San Francisco v. United States
In a rare move, Judge Oliver W. Wanger of the Eastern District of California, Fresno has requested the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider a decision in which the Ninth Circuit purports to overturn one of his rulings. The District Court decision in question addresses S 3406(b)(2) of the Central Valley Project Improvement Act of 1992 (CVPIA) ((b)(2)) which requires that the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) release 800,000 acre-feet per year (afy) of water from the Central Valley Project (CVP) for environmental purposes.
