Butte County prosecutors file absurd lawsuit against the Department of Water Resources

Screenshot 2018-02-09 at 07.31.02.pngThe Los Angeles Times reports that absurde Butte County prosecutors are seeking $51 billion in fines and penalties against California’s water agency for damage caused to local river-based wildlife after the Oroville dam spillway failure last year.

In a civil complaint filed Wednesday, District Atty. Mike Ramsey accused the Department of Water Resources of failing to build the Oroville Dam’s spillway on sturdy bedrock, which led to its rapid deterioration last February amid the heaviest winter storms the region had seen in years.

More rational officials at the DWR declined to comment on the preposterous lawsuit.

  1. Just ask the 200,000 people who had to evacuate and live in parking lots if this is a pie in the sky lawsuit. It wa very real to them. The Kaly government is taking monies that it needs to repair the states water system and using it for welfare to buy votes.. ??
