Los Angeles, CA—FisherBroyles, LLP is pleased to announce that the Supreme Court of the United States (‘U.S.S.C.’ or ‘the Supreme Court’) has granted review in Sheetz v. El Dorado County, a case led by FisherBroyles Partner, Paul Beard II.
Sheetz v. El Dorado County concerns whether land-use permit exactions promulgated by a legislative body – e.g., a city council, a county board of supervisors, a state legislature – are subject to heightened constitutional scrutiny under the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment.
In 2013, Mr. Beard successfully briefed and argued another property rights case—Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District. There, the U.S.S.C. recognized that monetary exactions imposed by permit agencies—not just demands for easements and other real-property interests—are subject to heightened constitutional scrutiny under the Takings Clause.
The U.S.S.C. will hear the argument for Sheetz v. El Dorado County in its January or February session.
