2002's Top Land Use Supreme Court Case
Once again, the year's key land use case before the U.S. Supreme Court comesfrom California. This time, the question for the high court is whether a32-month building moratorium imposed by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agencywas an unconstitutional taking of property rights. Lake Tahoe area property owners seeking compensation for a moratorium on development first enacted two decades ago received a mixed reaction on Monday from the two Supreme Court justices who hold the critical votes for their claims.
