This special publication from the editors of Land Use Law Report is a unique collection of the most significant U.S. ecological land use disputes over the past five years. Each article goes beyond simple reportage to insightfully analyze the key points of the case, the regulations at issue, the arguments made (both successful and not), and the judicial interpretation. "Environmental Protections Case Law 2006-2012" focuses on the recent judicial application of the most significant federal environmental laws and statutes and covers topics ranging from the ecological (e.g., genetically modified crops, forest fire management, and wildlife protections) to the procedural (e.g., EIS requirements, zoning law, preemption, and federal jurisdiction).
Zoning is the most popular form of local government land use regulation in the United States—which is why zoning disputes so often end up in court. Land Use Law Report's Zoning Survival Guide is a unique compilation of case law analysis on zoning topics from special use permits and spot zoning to takings, environment issues and RLUIPA claims.
