Endangered species, death penalty opinions filing Monday

On Monday morning, the Supreme Court will file its opinions in Central Coast Forest Association v. California Fish and Game Commission and People v. Delgado, which were both argued on the December calendar.

The Central Coast case has been around awhile; review was granted four years ago.  The court limited review to these issues — Under the California Endangered Species Act, Fish and Game Code section 2050 et seq., may the Fish and Game Commission consider a petition to delist a species on the ground that the original listing was in error?  If so, does the petition at issue here contain sufficient information to warrant the Commission’s further consideration?

Delgado is an automatic appeal from a June 2000 judgment of death.

The Central Coast and Delgado opinions can be viewed Monday starting at 10:00 a.m.
