Stop the Beach Renourishment v. Fla. DEP

Date: August 11, 2011

U.S. Supreme Court

The Supreme Court will determine whether the Florida Supreme Court violated the Takings Clause of the Constitution when it upheld the Florida Beach and Shore Preservation Act.  The law authorizes the state to convert private waterfront property into a public beach thus depriving land owners of their full littoral rights without compensation.

Status:  DECIDED.  Amicus brief filed in support of landowners on 8/16/09.  Court ruled against the landowners in June 2010.
