UF College of Law experts available to comment on U.S. Supreme Court case Stop the Renourishment v. Florida Department of Environmental Protection (08-1151)

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — On Thursday, the Supreme Court released its decision in Stop the Renourishment v. Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

The decision upheld the Florida Supreme Court ruling that the state can conduct beach-widening and reclaiming programs on eroded beaches – which could modify private property lines – without having to compensate private waterfront property owners. This could result in property owners losing private access to the beach and lower property values.

UF College of Law experts are available to discuss the case and the ramifications of the court’s decision.
