Conference Call

The right to improve privately-owned real property is recognized as basic and generally beneficial to society. Yet, government is free to impose some restrictions on land use and development for health and safety reasons.  On Tuesday, January 15, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District, a Florida case that will examine the limits of government regulation of real property.  Our expert will attend and report on the oral argument in the case in which a private landowner asserts that government-imposed conditions on the granting of a commercial development permit exceed the government’s authority.


  • Mr. James S. Burling, Director of Litigation, Pacific Legal Foundation


Call begins at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
