US Supreme Court decision on wetland development

June 27, 2013 at 3:41 pm

The US Supreme Court sides with Florida property owner who asserted that demands from local government in exchange for developing environmentally sensitive land were unreasonable

The central question: Can government require developers to make monetary concessions in exchange for permission to develop wetlands on their own property?

“The court clearly saw as extortion–my word, not theirs–the attempt by the watershed authority here to demand things that were not clearly related to this project, as a price of approving it. And that issue is one that developers here confront all of the time.”
Peter Coyle, attorney, Larkin Hoffman
