An Orange County Superior Court judge has reversed a portion of a $94.5 million judgment against the City of San Diego in an inverse condemnation case. Judge Raymond Ikola approved the city's request for a new trial on $29.2 million worth of damages related to breach of contract, but he upheld a jury's remaining $65.3 million award to businessman Roque de la Fuente II. Earlier this year, a jury awarded de la Fuente the huge sum after finding that city actions had damaged a 312-acre business park de la Fuente was developing in Otay Mesa. He claimed that the city breached a 1986 development agreement, dooming development of the business park. De la Fuente contended the city made permits difficult to obtain by increasing fees and conditions, in violation of the development agreement. He also argued that the city routed border truck traffic through the business park and proposed an international airport near the development, scaring away potential tenants. The city maintains it did nothing improper and that de la Fuente was an inexperienced developer who got burned by the recession of the early 1990s. City attorneys also argued during the recent round of litigation that de la Fuente provided misleading testimony during the trial. City attorneys vowed to appeal the ruling.
