New video highlights Birnbaum case
In our latest video, PLF client Wendy Birnbaum explains how PLF is helping her seek a legal remedy for bureaucratic delay. Ms. Birnbaum was unable to open a campground on her property in the foothills of Mt. Rainier while she waited over five years for Pierce County to issue a decision on her permit application. By law, the county should have issued a decision in 120 days.
When Ms. Birnbaum sued to recover damages she incurred as a result of the county’s unlawful delay, the court ruled that she had no right to recover. PLF attorneys have petitioned the Supreme Court of Washington to review Wendy’s case.

Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the government’s attempts to stifle landowner suits challenging federal agency action under the Clean Water Act.
