The city of San Luis Obispo has asked for legal fees associated with a Dalidio ranch civil suit that was recently thrown out of federal court. Assistant City Attorney Christine Dietrick said that the city hopes to recover $28,478.50 in attorney and related court fees.
In related news, on March 27, the Dalidio camp filed an appeal in a separate lawsuit that sought to delay or end development on Ernie Dalidio's ranch land. Earlier this year, a county judge ruled in favor of grassroots group Citizens for Planning Responsibly, overturning the county voter-approved Measure J that allowed Dalidio to develop.
At the same time, Dalidio is trying to get the land developed through the county's regular planning process.
