ITEM 8.01 Other Events

On October 4, 2007, a tentative ruling was issued on Motions for Summary Judgment/Adjudication ("Motions") in the lawsuit of Cadiz Inc. (“Cadiz” or “the Company”) against the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (“Metropolitan”) in Los Angeles Superior Court. The tentative ruling (which, unlike a final ruling, is not legally binding) was issued prior to the October 4, 2007 scheduled hearing on the Motions. At the hearing, the Company and Metropolitan presented oral arguments that the court will take under advisement while considering a final ruling on the Motions.

The tentative ruling would dismiss the Company’s contractual claims for express contract, implied contract, specific performance and promissory estoppel, but would not dismiss the Company’s cause of action for breach of fiduciary duty. If the tentative ruling stands, the case will move forward to trial on the breach of fiduciary duty claim. After the final ruling is issued, the Company will consider all of its options.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
