Commence the drumroll for the first Litigator of the Week of my tenure. It’s been a couple of weeks since we last handed out bragging rights, so that drumroll is going to be dramatically prolonged as we acknowledge a bunch of worthy runners-up.

First up is a win that a Beveridge & Diamond team led by partners James Slaughter, Gary Smith, and associates Megan Morgan and Jacob Duginski scored for Chiquita Canyon Landfill, which filed suit in 2017 challenging the Conditional Use Permit imposed on one of California’s largest landfills by Los Angeles County. In a 62-page decision issued on July 2, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel Murphy struck or remanded 12 of the conditions imposed by the county, voiding estimated fees and costs of about $300 million dollars over the life of the landfill.
