Pacifica Tribune/Jane Northrop, Staff, 8/26/14. "Hearing begins on lawsuit to re-do environmental impact report for highway widening project."

The case was heard last Friday in San Mateo County Superior Court in the courtroom of Judge Marie Weiner. Both sides did not finish presenting their cases to Judge Weiner, so the case has been continued to next Friday, August 29 at 2 p.m.
