I am sad that my first post after a one-month hiatus is to report the passing of Environmental Law giant Joe Sax. His work on the public trust doctrine and the protection of natural resources (public and private) has had a significant impact on land use. And of course, he has has a significant impact on land use scholars. As a Berkeley Law alum, I had the opportunity to have Joe as a mentor -- a role he continued into my post-law graduate program and during my efforts to become a law professor. I'm sure well see some fuller tributes in coming days on Legal Planet and Environmental Law Profs.
[As a random side note. I was surprised that Joe Sax doesn't have a wikipedia page. Hopefully someone more ambitious than I will remedy that.]
