According to the administrative law section of our guide to California Practice Guides and Formbooks, there are a couple of practice guides that look useful. These are:

  • California Administrative Mandamus, 3d ed., by Mitchell E. Abbott and published by CEB (Calif. Continuing Education of the Bar). Available in print at the Zief Library at: Law Stacks KFC 782 .C35 2003. Available online via CEB's OnLaw to USF faculty, staff, and students, and to visitors to the Zief Library. Chapter 9 is an extensive discussion of "Statutes of Limitations."
  • Public Administrative Law, by Gregory A. Ogden. (Published as vol. 41 & 41A of California Forms of Pleading & Practice). Available on Lexis to authorized subscribers in the Lexis source California Forms of Pleading & Practice. Available at the Zief Library at: Law Stacks KFC 1010 .A65 C3, v. 41 & v. 41A. See Volume 41A, "Public Agency Adjudications Judicial Review," and especially Chapter 473A.12, "Limitations of Action and Laches." (This is a shorter discussion than the one in California Administrative Mandamus
