Cadiz Inc. Reports Dismissal of Lawsuit Challenging Water Project Environmental Approval

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cadiz Inc. [NASDAQ:CDZI] ("Cadiz", the "Company") reported today that a lawsuit challenging the environmental approval of the Cadiz Valley Water Conservation, Recovery and Storage Project ("Project") has been dismissed with prejudice in Orange County, California Superior Court.

The lawsuit brought by interest group CROWN was filed in August 2012 against the Company, the Santa Margarita Water District, the County of San Bernardino and additional Project participating agencies to challenge the July 31, 2012 approval of the Project's Final Environmental Impact Report under the California Environmental Quality Act.

This is the second case challenging Project approval to be dismissed. Lawsuits brought by three petitioners remain pending against the Project. These cases have been coordinated in Orange County Superior Court before one judge and are expected to move to trial later this year.
