CALIFORNIA WATER FIX: Ruling letter, July 7, 2017
On June 15, 2017, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) submitted a request for official notice of the following sur-rebuttal exhibits: DWR-936, -937, -946, -947, -949, and -950. These exhibits were authenticated and discussed in the written, sur-rebuttal testimony of Allan Davis (DWR-935). DWR withdrew DWR-935 because Mr. Davis was not available, due to a court appearance in another matter, when he was scheduled to present his testimony and be subject to cross-examination. DWR also withdrew Mr. Davis’ statement of qualifications (DWR-934) and three other exhibits that were authenticated and discussed in Mr. Davis’ written, sur-rebuttal testimony (DWR-938, -939, and -948). All of these exhibits are related to the condemnation of land in connection with the original construction of Clifton Court Forebay. They were offered as sur-rebuttal to the rebuttal testimony of Suzanne Womack on behalf of Clifton Court, L.P. concerning alleged property damage to Clifton Court’s land adjacent to Clifton Court Forebay. Clifton Court opposed DWR’s request for official notice in a letter dated June 19, 2017. DWR filed a response to Clifton Court’s objection on June 21, 2017.
