Constitutional Law--Equal Protection--Zoning--Snob Zoning: Must A Man's Home Be A Castle?, Michigan Law Review

Michigan Law Review

This Note will analyze and evaluate the legal theories that may be employed to attack snob zoning in the courts. First, the feasibility of attacking snob zoning via the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment will be examined. The second part of this Note will delineate alternative judicial responses to snob zoning that are couched in more conventional zoning-law terms.

Nuisance As A Modern Mode Of Land Use Control, William H. Wilson

Recognizing the inflexibility inherent in present zoning mechanisms, this comment analyzes the concept of nuisance as an additional, more versatile means of land use control. In an exhaustive categorization and evaluation of Washington cases and those from other jurisdictions, the author sets forth the principles of nuisance law and the factors affecting court decisions on nuisance. Both private and public actionable nuisances are discussed, along with available remedies, within a concise analytical framework.

Regional Planning And Local Autonomy In Washington Zoning Law, G. Brucec Clement, Egil Krogh, Jr. May 1970

Regional Planning And Local Autonomy In Washington Zoning Law, G. Brucec Clement, Egil Krogh, Jr.

Washington Law Review

The rapid urbanization of large areas of Washington call for effective land use planning and zoning. At present, regional and state land use plans are implemented, if at all, only by the grace of local zoning officials. This comment discusses the means available for adjusting the relationships between local zoning officials and extra-municipal planners so as to preserve local autonomy without destroying the effectiveness of state and regional plans. The authors conclude that the adoption of portions of the Model Land Development Code would accomplish this result.


Preservation Of America's Open Space: Proposal For A National Land-Use Commission, Paul N. Mccloskey Jr. May 1970

Preservation Of America's Open Space: Proposal For A National Land-Use Commission, Paul N. Mccloskey Jr.

Michigan Law Review

Environmental hazards may be divided into four types: those affecting air, those affecting water, those affecting quietude, and those affecting landscape. This Article will focus on the last of these hazards and will analyze a single aspect of it: the continuing loss of open-space lands. I suggest that this loss can be controlled only if we are willing, in the next decade, to review and to overhaul our entire basic system of land use and tax laws, accepting no present law as sacred other than the constitutional guarantee of just compensation for the taking of private property.


The Conservationists And The Public Lands: Administrative And Judicial Remedies Relating To The Use And Disposition Of The Public Lands Administered By The Department Of The Interior, Michigan Law Review May 1970

The Conservationists And The Public Lands: Administrative And Judicial Remedies Relating To The Use And Disposition Of The Public Lands Administered By The Department Of The Interior, Michigan Law Review

Michigan Law Review

The scope of the Department's functions is vast, and the statutory and regulatory materials dealing with those functions are overwhelming in their complexity and breadth. For that reason, this Comment will not seek to make an exhaustive examination of the agency's functions and procedures; rather, it will attempt to provide a selective illustration of the agency's procedures and functions and to concentrate on adjudicatory and review procedures, including judicial review. Because recent years have seen a marked increase in attention to resources and to conservation issues by persons and groups not otherwise directly concerned with the disposition ...

Sovereign Immunity And Nonstatutory Review Of Federal Administrative Action: Some Conclusions From The Public-Lands Cases, Antonin Scalia Apr 1970

Sovereign Immunity And Nonstatutory Review Of Federal Administrative Action: Some Conclusions From The Public-Lands Cases, Antonin Scalia

Michigan Law Review

The purpose of the present Article is not to propose yet another route toward logical reconciliation of the sovereign-immunity cases; but, on the contrary, to urge general acceptance of the fact that such reconciliation is, and will probably remain, unattainable; to explain why this is so; and to suggest why it is not so bad. This modest goal will be attempted through a detailed examination of two recent Supreme Court cases and their most pertinent antecedents.

The Public Trust Doctrine In Natural Resource Law: Effective Judicial Intervention, Joseph L. Sax Jan 1970

The Public Trust Doctrine In Natural Resource Law: Effective Judicial Intervention, Joseph L. Sax

Michigan Law Review

Public concern about environmental quality is beginning to be felt in the courtroom. Private citizens, no longer willing to accede to the efforts of administrative agencies to protect the public interest, have begun to take the initiative themselves. One dramatic result is a proliferation of lawsuits in which citizens, demanding judicial recognition of their rights as members of the public, sue the very governmental agencies which are supposed to be protecting the public interest. While this Article was being written, several dozen such suits were initiated-to enforce air and water pollution laws in states where public agencies have been created ...
