If you are a member of the ABA, mark your calendars for Tuesday, February 26, 2013, noon to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time, for a free teleconference jointly sponsored by the ABA's Section on Litigation's Environmental Litigation Commitee and the Condemnation, Zoning, and Land Use Committee to discuss the latest and greatest in takings law, specifically the three cases the U.S. Supreme Court is ruling on this Term.
Here's the description:
For the first time since 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court has three property rights cases on its docket. One of them, Arkansas Game & Fish, regarding compensation for flooding, was decided in December. Another, Koontz, concerning the applicability of the Nollan and Dolan nexus tests, has been argued. The final case, Horne, a most unusual case about what might be described as raisin sequestration, is still on the sidelines.
An expert panel -- two practitioners, a federal researcher, and a law professor, all extraordinarily conversant in the three cases -- will discuss what the claims are all about, the outcome of the case already decided and the probable outcomes in the two remaining cases, and what all lawyers who deal with any matters that may affect property rights need to know about them.
This will be a not-to-miss, lively discussion that will not only get you up to speed, but put you out ahead of others when it comes to this especially important term.
More information, including on-line registration, here. The panel will be moderated by Dwight Merriam (Robinson & Cole, Hartford), and includes:
Amy Bourlris (Gunster, Yoakley & Stewart, Miami)
Professor Steven Eagle (George Mason School of Law, Arlington)
Robert Meltz (Attorney-Adviser, American Law Division, Congressional Research Service, Adjunct Professor of Law, Georgetown Law, Washington)
I'm the fourth speaker, and hope you can join us.
