Federal Judge Dale A. Drozd temporarily blocked President Donald Trumps efforts to send more water to Central Valley growers on Monday.
Drozd issued a preliminary injunction in two lawsuits brought against the administration by Californias Natural Resources Agency and Environmental Protection Agency and a half-dozen environmental groups.
Federal Pumping Cant Increase During May
The order bars the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation until May 31 from increasing water exports from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta through the federal Central Valley Project.
The suits argued that the exports would cause irreparable harm to species protected by state and federal law.
Todays victory is critical, but the fight is not over, state Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement. We have the facts, science, and the law behind us, and we look forward to making our case in court.

Drozd was confirmed by a 6921 vote in late October, 2015, so it was known that he was a partisan Democrat POS.
Of course...Orange man is awful! Truly horrible!
Every thing he says and does is ALWAYS wrong. He is, to them, a blubbering idiot who can NEVER do anything right
I hope the public will be reminded of this in case there are food shortages.
Trump is trying to save the farmers in Central Valley.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) fought California’s reds when they denied his San Jaquin Valley farmers (est. 40,000 or so) water.
Nunes has been getting his revenge against the Calif. Reds, Pelosi, etc. ever since on the House Intelligence Committee.
Another hangin judge, but it’s not the convention meaning
this guy deserves.
These judges have become political pawns. That needs to
All the Left has to do is shop for the right judge, and all
of a sudden the judge is president on a topic for a few weeks
until his ass gets handed to him by a higher level court.
You should only get so many overturns before your butt
is sitting on the sidewalk outside the court for good.
Oh, great. Another black-robed git apparently wants to ensure that the Central Valley remains a wasteland.
More envirowacko crap to gut US good supply to save an animal only locally scarce.
Obammy Judge.. nuff said..
