Web Cast: Supreme Court Hears Key Pier Case
As Realtors and Republican lawmakers protest proposed DNR pier regulations, the state Supreme Court is mulling a closely-watched case from Green Lake County.
According to the Supreme Court-provided summary, the case involves a homeowners association that owns a 77-foot stretch of lakeshore property with a pier where association members keep their boats. Acting on a complaint, the DNR ordered the association to shorten the pier and remove most of the boat slips. The matter landed in court. The Supreme Court is expected to decide if the administrative law judge correctly balanced the interests of the homeowners against the interests of the public, and whether the removal of boat slips constituted an illegal taking without due process.
