Program Agenda: There is general agreement as to the legitimacy of municipal use of eminent domain authority for traditional public uses (roads, parks, etc.). Yet, as the fallout over theKelodecision proved, nontraditional use of eminent domain authority remains quite controversial. In that light, this month’s speakers will discuss how municipalities are employing expansive eminent domain powers to take local utilities and other going concerns, for a variety of nontraditional purposes, including environmental goals.
Speakers:Professor Richard B. Collins, Professor of Law and former Director of the Byron R. White Center for the Study of American Constitutional Law at the University of Colorado Law School
Professor Shelley Ross Saxer, Vice Dean and Laure Sudreau-Rippe Endowed Professor of Law at Pepperdine School of Law.
Professors’ Corner: A monthly webinar (on the second Wednesday of each month) featuring a panel of law professors, discussing recent cases or issues of interest to real estate or trust and estate practitioners and scholars.
