Baldwin Hills 2008 PXP Environmental Impact Report (EIR) did not include sections which are typically part of the industry standard EIR. Therefore, a lawsuit (Petition for Writ of Mandamus) to get a industry standard EIR (study) of the oilfield, the grounds and the surrounding neighborhood was filed by the Citizen Coalition for a Safe Community, and to stop drilling until a complete study is done.
