1. SUPREME COURT

Wetlands regulation at heart of Fla. property rights dispute

In late 1993 and early 1994, Coy Koontz Sr. applied for two permits from a Florida agency as he sought to build on wetlands he owned just east of Orlando. Today, Koontz has been dead for 13 years, his family no longer owns the property and the permits have long been approved. And yet a legal dispute about the permitting process is about to be argued at the Supreme Court. The case, Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District, raises major questions about the right of government to impose conditions in return for permit approval.
