PLF Scores Important Property Rights Win In Capistrano Shores


PLF Director of Communications Harold Johnson is joined by PLF Principal Attorney Larry Salzman to discuss a recent victory for beachfront property owner Eric Wills. An Orange County Superior Court ruled in favor of the San Clemente family whose right to protect their beachfront mobile home with a seawall was under assault by the California Coastal Commission.

“This is an important victory that is likely to buttress property rights up and down the California coast,” said PLF Principal Attorney Larry Salzman. “Simply put, the ruling stops the Coastal Commission from abusing its authority. Property owners are most vulnerable when they need a permit from the government, and the commission leveraged its power to unlawfully strip the Wills of their property rights."
