Lessons from Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District:
Game Changer or Just a Little Rule Refinement?

July 17, 2013
4:00 to 5:30 p.m. ET

The U.S. Supreme Court ended its term with a decision that will change planning and regulation — but by how much, and will the change be for better or worse? Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District is the most important planning law case in nearly a decade, and already there is widespread disagreement about what it means.

A diverse panel of land use lawyers will examine this ruling and its impact on exactions, property rights, and governmental actions in the context of the landmark cases before it.  You — planner, property owner, developer, advocate or neighbor — will take away practical advice on how to comply with the Court's mandate and make it work to your benefit.
