Oral Argument in Stop the Beach Renourishment Today
This morning (Wed, Dec. 2) at 10am, the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral argument in Stop the Beach Renourishment v. Florida Department of Environmental Protection (“STBR”) (08-1151), a case asking whether the Florida Supreme Court’s endorsement of a state-led beach restoration project on Florida’s Gulf Coast constituted an unconstitutional “judicial taking” of private beachfront property.
CAC filed a “friend of the court” brief in STBR on Oct. 5, on behalf of clients including the National League of Cities and the National Association of Counties, in support of Florida’s efforts to restore its eroded beaches. More information about our brief, and the case itself, is available here. Check back with T&H later today for an argument recap.
