City of Irvine v. Southern California Ass'n of Gov'ts, No. G040513

Trial court judgment sustaining demurrer filed by defendant without leave to amend and dismissing the action is affirmed where the court  properly found it lacked jurisdiction to review the propriety of plaintiff's regional housing needs assessment allocation as the administrative procedure established under Government Code sect. 65584 to calculate a local government's allocation of the regional housing needs assessment is intended to be the exclusive remedy for the municipality to challenge that determination, and reflect a clear intent to preclude judicial intervention in the process.
