Prof. Selmi to represent the City of Beverly Hills in Subway Metro case

The City of Beverly Hills has hired Professor Dan Selmi to argue the proposed plan to build a subway underneath Beverly Hills High School. The subway plan seeks to extend the Metro Purple Line from Wilshire/Western westward for nine miles and include seven new stations. 

He joins a team of lawyers who will represent the City in state and federal courts.  Selmi will appear in state court against the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. He has argued more than 30 cases involving land use and environmental law in state and federal apellate courts, including four in the California Supreme Court.

In a statement, Beverly Hills City Attorney Larry Weiner said, "Both Professor Selmi and Mr. Karmel bring tremendous assets to our litigation team."
