The Constitutional Law Committee is pleased to announce an upcoming webinar on two cases relevant to environmental law from the 2016–2017 U.S. Supreme Court term:
• Murr v. Wisconsin: The Supreme Court announces a new test for regulatory takings—when government regulation becomes so much of a burden on property rights that it amounts to a taking under the Fifth Amendment.
• Town of Chester v. Laroe Estates, Inc: The Supreme Court addresses the requirements for intervening as of right. This ruling will impact many environmental and energy cases, where intervention by third parties occurs regularly.
Panelist will also review Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch’s environmental jurisprudence and his potential impact on the Supreme Court.
