The judge who sparked national interest in a debate that pits ecological protection against patriotic festivities temporarily suspended her ruling Friday that requires Fourth of July fireworks in La Jolla and other citywide events to undergo environmental review.

San Diego County Superior Court Judge Linda Quinn granted a request from event organizers and the city to stay her May 27 ruling that subjected such events to the California Environmental Quality Act of 1970.

“I’m relieved and thrilled,” said attorney Robert Howard, who represents the La Jolla Community Fireworks Foundation in the case. “The judge has given us the time we need to address the court’s concerns and we’re happy to be in the position to move forward with this year’s event.”
