Here's the program description:
Over one-half of the people in the United States live within 50 miles of the coastline. Hurricanes and similar types of natural disasters have caused billions of dollars in damage in recent years, particularly in coastal communities, and some scientists warn that global warming and rising sea levels will increase the frequency or severity of these types of natural disasters. Private property rights in the wake of natural disasters are an important issue not only to property owners, but also to their lenders and to the recovery and viability of the region in the wake of natural disaster.We have assembled a geographically diverse group of property rights attorneys from coastal communities to discuss their experiences with property rights in the aftermath of natural disasters.The moderator will be Mark M. Murakami of the Damon Key firm in Honolulu. From New Jersey, we have invited Anthony Della Pelle and Tom Olson of the McKirdy & Riskin firm. Ed Thomas of the National Hazard Mitigation Association is invited as is Robert H. Thomas of inversecondemnation.com. Geographically rounding out the panel will be Casey Pipes of the Helmsing, Leach law firm in Mobile, Alabama.This program is part of the ABA Section of Litigation’s Roundtable series.
