Attorney Paul J. Beard II will appear on Fox News TODAY at 10:20 a.m. PDT / 1:20 p.m. EST to talk about our recent Supreme Court victory in Koontz v. St Johns River Water Management District.
Mr. Beard, who argued the case at the Supreme Court, will explain how the decision provides property owners new protections from extortionate demands by land use permitting officials. In particular, it makes it clear that unjust demands for money are prohibited by the Constitution’s Takings Clause just as much as unjust demands for property or other concessions.
