Marcus Brown recently spoke to the 680 Exchange commercial real estate group. His topic, “The Latest in Real Estate Litigation 2017,” covered a legal and practical analysis of three case studies: (1) ADA litigation; (2) Lending on Trust Property; and (3) Binding Arbitration. Thanks to Greg Griffin of AEI Consultants and Peter Maclennan of Maclennan Investment Group, Inc. for hosting. #Commercial #Speaking #Litigation
On July 6, 2017, the Supreme Court of California held that landowners could not contest unfavorable permit conditions because they had proceeded with construction during the litigation, forfeiting their challenge. (Lynch v. California Coastal Commission, Case no. S221980 (Cal. 2017)). The court reached this conclusion even though the owners had proceeded with construction under protest and even though the permit was for a protective seawall that could not wait for litigation.
