Audio Highlights and Analysis of PLF’s Oral Argument in the U.S. Supreme Court

April 13, 2016 I By PACIFIC LEGAL FOUNDATION

On this special episode of Courting Liberty, PLF Director of Litigation Jim Burling recounts PLF’s recent visit to Washington D.C. using audio clips from the Hawkes oral argument at the U.S. Supreme Court with attorneys Reed Hopper, Mark Miller and PLF President and CEO Rob Rivett.

Through a “Jurisdictional Determination,” the Army Corps of Engineers designated property owned by The Hawkes Co., Inc., Pierce Investment Company, and LPF Properties, in Minnesota, as “wetlands” over which the Corps has regulatory authority. On appeal, the threshold issue is whether property owners have the legal right to bring a court challenge to such a regulatory finding.
