A new Supreme Court case has high stakes for the future of housing and private property rights. Join Pacific Legal Foundation for a virtual panel discussion on Sheetz v. County of El Dorado—a property rights case challenging hidden taxes that local governments force people to pay when they apply for permits to build homes. PLF is co-counsel representing George Sheetz along with former PLF attorney Paul Beard of FisherBroyles, LLP. Oral arguments are scheduled for January 9.
At this event, panelists will give background on the case and its far-reaching implications. They’ll also discuss key precedents that laid the groundwork for this fight, including Nollan v. California Coastal Commission, Dolan v. City of Tigard, and St. Johns River Water Management District v. Koontz.
