Coastal Resources

            The California Coastal Act is one of the strongest environmental protection laws in the world, primarily because it prohibits most development in specific types of coastal resources, including wetlands and Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Areas.  The firm has litigated a number of Coastal Act cases, including cases for Wetlands Action Network.  From 2005 to the present, Mr. Lippe has represented the Sierra Club in proceeding before the California Coastal Commission regarding a proposal by the Pebble Beach Company to clearcut much of the remaining Monterey Pine Forest on the Monterey Peninsula to make way for a ninth golf course on the peninsula.
