Salkin et al. on 'Green' Requirements and 'Leedigation'

Patricia Salkin (Albany), Graham Grady, Nicole Mueller, and Susan Herendeen have posted Government 'Green' Requirements and 'Leedigation' (Real Estate Law Journal) on SSRN.  Here's the abstract:

In the last decade, many state and local governments have responded to the threat of global warming and climate change by offering incentives to spur green construction and incorporating principles of efficiency and conservation into their building codes. To accomplish this, some local governments have tied their standards to those set by the independent, non-profit U.S. Green Building Council, known as LEED standards. This article examines how local parties have been sued for alleged failure to deliver on the promised "Green."
