Virginia's Zoning Challenger

John Foote is considered to be Virginia's "shrewdest, most effective advocate" for landowners. Opponents say he undermines local government.

"...is colleagues, friends and even those he's vanquished in court call [John Foote is] one of the shrewdest, most effective advocates for landowners and developers in Virginia...He has elicited the ire and awe of those in and outside of government, most recently after he helped lead one of the broadest legal challenges to a local jurisdiction in state history...Opponents paint Foote as a gun-slinging absolutist out to undermine local government authority and promote the paving of hundreds of square miles of often scenic land.
