LOS ANGELES – One petition was brought by community group Protect Ballona Wetlands and the second by another group, Defend Ballona Wetlands, along with biologist Robert Jan van de Hoek and Los Angeles City Council candidate Molly Basler. The two legal actions, filed Thursday, ask a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to set aside all approvals, alleging numerous violations of the California Environmental Quality Act. The petition alleges that the project proposed was not adequately described, a complaint raised by federal agencies, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
