Supreme Court Rules Against Florida Environmental Officials

2013-08-06

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled governments must show how money or easements for land development permits are related to the damages that they might cause. The case started nearly twenty years ago when Florida landowner Coy Koontz Sr. wanted to develop 3 acres of a 15-acre parcel of land near Orlando, donating the remaining 12 acres to conservation. The government wanted more than the 80% offer, or pay up to $150,000 to improve a government property miles away. After the homeowner passed away in 2000, the legal fight was continued by his son, Coy Koontz Jr.
