Supreme Court backs landowner in Fla. wetlands case, opens door to more permit scrutiny

The Supreme Court sided today with a Florida landowner who challenged terms for a state-issued permit for developing wetlands, establishing a significantly stricter standard for conditions regulators place on permit applications. The 5-4 decision along ideological lines in Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District is a major win for property rights activists who have long claimed the government has too much control over landowners in the permitting process.
