Excerpt:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A judge refuted a request Friday from Central Valley farmers who looked for to stop work on California’s ambitious high-speed rail project. Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Timothy Frawley refuted a request for a preliminary injunction. Groups representing Central Valley farmers declare that the California High-Speed Rail Authority should need to stop all planning and engineering work on the $ 68 billion project because the state broke environmental laws. The judge ruled that “the authority acted reasonably and in good faith” in considering the project’s impact. The rail authority’s chairman, Dan Richard, applauded the choice. “Both the voters and the Legislature have spoken on high-speed rail,” he stated in a declaration.
