Judge Bradley Boeckamn ruled Monday, Sept. 13, that Trinity County violated a settlement agreement it made with Trinity Action Association.
In his decision the judge ruled that:
* The settlement agreement signed between the county and TAA in August 2019 is valid and enforceable and was breached;
* The county may not lawfully exempt itself from California Environmental Quality Act guidelines;
* The county may not pass any further urgency ordinances to approve, extend, renew or issue commercial cannabis cultivation licenses without documenting full CEQA compliance;
* The county may allow current commercial cannabis license holders in good standing to engage in pre-harvesting, harvesting and post-harvesting activities until Oct. 31.
