Right to Seawall Protection Is Now Before California Supreme Court

May 25, 2015 I By PACIFIC LEGAL FOUNDATION

These oceanfront homeowners needed a seawall to protect their property from severe damage. The State Constitution and statutes guarantee the right to protect private property, but the Coastal Commission imposed a 20 year expiration date on that guarantee. At that time, the homeowners must either re-apply to the Commission for another permit, or tear down the seawall. This case challenges that Coastal Commission decision as an unlawful extension of power.
