We're on our third day at the 2018 ALI-CLE Eminent Domain and Land Valuation Conference in Charleston, SC, and as usual, we're having our headline presentations by takings guru Michael Berger (pictured above), who is updating us on the most interesting and important cases of the past year, and Jim Burling, who will be answering the question, "Should We Rethink Regulatory Takings Law? The Takings Clause, Privileges and Immunities, and Due Process."
- Fane Lozman (Mr. Houseboat) back at the Supreme Court.
- Latest Chapter in the NC Map Act Cases: State Does Not Have Sovereign Immunity From Takings: "sovereign immunity must be juxtaposed with the contrary sovereignty of the individual, whose natural rights preceded government and were enumerated in the federal Bill of Rights."
- Bay Point Properties v. Mississippi Transportation Comm'n, No. 16-1077
- Nies - the public trust and beaches
Here are links to the cases and issues which we discussed in the National Forum:
This year's conference has been a big success. More than 250 attendees and faculty, and -- very importantly -- nearly 100 first-time attendees. This bodes well both for the Conference and the eminent domain and property bar.
A big thank you to our ALI-CLE Program Attorney Amy Weinberg for undertaking the planning and execution of this very good conference.
As we posted yesterday, the 2019 Conference has been set: mark your calendars for January 24-26, 2019, in Palm Springs, California, at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel. We'll see you there.
