New video highlights Birnbaum case

September 12, 2012 | By BRIAN HODGES

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.
