#17-266 City of Oroville v. Superior Court, S243247. (C077181; nonpublished opinion; Butte County Superior Court; 152036.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal denied a petition for peremptory writ of mandate. This case presents the following issue: Is a city liable for inverse condemnation when a blockage in a city sewer main and the absence of a legally required backwater valve on private property caused sewage to back up onto that property?

Review granted: 08/30/17
