Pacific Legal Foundation on a roll nationwide
It’s been an amazing month here at PLF. First there was our unanimous Supreme Court victory in Sackett v. EPA, striking down environmental bureaucrats’ abuse of process against landowners. Then there was our participation in the historic Obamacare cases before the Supreme Court. Then the Governor of Arizona signed legislation to protect the rights of property owners to seek just compensation under that state’s Private Property Rights Protection Act—an issue raised by our lawsuit against the city of Flagstaff. On Friday, the Texas Supreme Court ruled in favor of PLF’s client Carol Severance in a crucial, long-awaited victory for private property rights in that state, and today, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals once again sided with PLF and upheld California’s laws against racial discrimination. Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear an important regulatory takings case, Arkansas Fish & Game Commission, in which PLF filed a friend of the court brief explaining the importance of the Court’s review. Thanks to your support, PLF is rescuing liberty in courts across America.
