Building group publishes PLF article on ripeness

By Building group publishes PLF article on ripeness

My guest column for the Building Industry Association of Washington's newsletter, Building Insight, appears in the May/June 2011 issue.  In the article, I discuss the onerous nature of Washington's ripeness doctrine as it applies to regulatory takings cases, and argue that courts should follow precedent that offers flexibility to land use applicants — precedent that PLF has fought to win over the years.

Go here to read the entire article.  Also, the article references the pending ripeness case Thun v. City of Bonney Lake, which I blogged about here.
