Habitat Trust for Wildlife, Inc. v. City of Rancho Cucamonga, No. E042229

In an environmental dispute involving the development of residential properties, trial court judgment is affirmed where: 1) the court did not err in refusing to grant plaintiff's writ petition seeking to force defendant to set aside a resolution determining that plaintiff was not a qualified conservation entity and enter a new resolution; 2) the court properly granted summary judgment on plaintiff's causes of action for breach of contract and breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing against certain defendants; and 3) the court properly awarded those defendants attorney's fees and costs as plaintiffs failed to demonstrate they were entitled to reversal of the judgment.
