Lynch v. California Coastal CommissionAnnotate this Case
The California Coastal Commission appealed the grant of the writ of mandamus directing it to remove three conditions from a coastal development permit amendment issued to respondents Barbara Lynch and Thomas Frick. The Commission contended respondents waived any challenge to these conditions by signing and recording documents agreeing to them and then accepting the benefit of the permit by completing their project. The Commission further contended the conditions were valid and supported by substantial evidence. The Court of Appeal agreed with both contentions and reversed the judgment.
