An announcement from John Echeverria:
The Supreme Court Hears Arguments
When: Wednesday, December 2nd, 12:15 PM
Where: Hart Auditorium, Georgetown University Law Center
600 New Jersey Ave., NW, Washington, DC
Immediately after oral argument in the Supreme Court, hear advocates discuss Stop the Beach Renourishment, Inc. v. Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which presents the question whether a judicial change in the common law can “take” property from landowners in violation of the federal Takings Clause. The case also raises questions about how a state can legislatively address beach erosion and modify the boundaries between public tidelands and private uplands, issues that will grow in significance as sea levels rise due to global warming. Briefs in the case can be found at http://www.abanet.org/publiced/preview/briefs/dec09.shtml.
