California Supreme Court declines to hear McNamees' petition
The California Supreme Court has declined to hear George and Sharlee McNamees' challenge to the California Coastal Commission's dictate that they remove picnic facilities and other amenities from their private beachfront property at their home in Corona Del Mar.
PLF STATEMENT: "The McNamees will now have to plan and start the expensive, cumbersome, and personally wrenching process of removing, from their own private property the picnic table, shower and other amenities that they have enjoyed and shared with the community for years," said PLF Principal Attorney Paul Beard. "In stubbornly micromanaging these homeowners and their land, the California Coastal Commission has displayed the arrogance that has made it notorious among property owners for decades"
