Reconciling Development And Natural Beauty: The Promise And Dilemma Of Conservation Easements, Zachary A. Bray 2016 University of Kentucky

Reconciling Development And Natural Beauty: The Promise And Dilemma Of Conservation Easements, Zachary A. Bray

Zachary Bray

Local and regional private land trusts are among the most important and most numerous conservation actors in contemporary America, and conservation easements are perhaps the key land conservation tools used by these trusts. In recent decades, privately held conservation easements and local and regional private land trusts have grown at a rapid and increasing rate, and the total acreage protected by privately held conservation easements is now larger than some states. The early growth of privately held conservation easements met widespread approval, but more recently, contemporary conservation easement practice has attracted many critics, based in part on well-publicized national scandals ...

Takings, Fiscal Illusion, And The Median Voter, Daniel M. Klerman 2016 USC Law School

Takings, Fiscal Illusion, And The Median Voter, Daniel M. Klerman

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

Schweizer (2017) provides a powerful and general way of using compensation payments to induce efficient actions. Its application to takings under fiscal illusion, however, is problematic. A better model would assume that the government decides to take property by considering effects on the median voter. Under that assumption, payments based on the market value of land, assuming non-excessive investment, induce efficient action by both landowners and the government.

Caveat Emptor: How The Public Trust Doctrine Impacts The Penn Central Test And A Beachfront Landowner’S “Bundle Of Rights”, Eric J. Risley Jr. 2016 Boston College Law School

Caveat Emptor: How The Public Trust Doctrine Impacts The Penn Central Test And A Beachfront Landowner’S “Bundle Of Rights”, Eric J. Risley Jr.

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Derived from ancient Justinian and English common law, the “public trust doctrine” vests ultimate and inalienable ownership of certain tracts of land in the state. Many states have incorporated some variation of the public trust doctrine into their statutes, constitutions, or common law. The application of the public trust doctrine, however, has been challenged as constituting a Fifth Amendment regulatory taking of private property under the United States Constitution, giving rise to the need for just compensation. This type of application of the public trust doctrine was at issue in the nearly decade-long saga culminating in the decision of Palazzolo ...


Real Estate Investment Trusts In Canada, Samita Pachai 2016 The University of Western Ontario

Real Estate Investment Trusts In Canada, Samita Pachai

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The Canadian real estate investment trust (REIT) industry began in the early 1990s and, over the past twenty years, the legislative landscape governing REITs has changed dramatically. This dissertation examines how REIT legislation has progressed in Canada and the effects it has had on the industry as a whole. After examining the basic characteristics of a REIT, an overview of the legislative evolution is presented. This thesis argues that recent legislation has been successful in allowing REITs to flourish, with 48 public equity REITs now trading in Canada comprising a market capitalization of over CAD 50 billion. A thorough examination ...

Intestate Succession In A Polygamous Society, Barry Cushman 2016 Notre Dame Law School

Intestate Succession In A Polygamous Society, Barry Cushman

Barry Cushman

The pursuit of polygamous unions by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in nineteenth-century Utah posed challenges for the law of the family unique in the annals of American legal history. The exotic familial relationships generated by plural marriages created novel and peculiar problems for the traditional law of intestacy. Mormon leaders, in an effort to avoid these problems, urged their polygamous brethren to make wills. Many polygamists, however, either neglected to plan their estates or were actively opposed to doing so. Mormon legislators accordingly sought to craft statutory schemes that would accommodate the peculiar inheritance ...

Emulsified Property, Jessica A. Shoemaker 2016 Pepperdine University

Emulsified Property, Jessica A. Shoemaker

Pepperdine Law Review

The typical American Indian reservation is often described as a “checkerboard” of different real property ownership forms. Individual parcels of reservation land may be held in either a special federal Indian trust status or in fee, by either Indian or non-Indian owners. The general jurisdictional framework provides that federal and sometimes tribal law sets the rights and responsibilities of trust owners, while fee owners are subject to a peculiar mix of state and tribal law. Many scholars have analyzed the challenges created by this checkerboard pattern of property and jurisdiction. This Article, however, reveals an even more complicated issue that ...
