Bar Journal Article on Quasi-Judicial hearings

Sid Ansbacher (former head of the Environmental and Land Use Law Chapter of the Florida Bar) and I wrote an article on how local government should structure decisions to be properly reviewed by certiorari in Florida. It was just printed in the May edition of the Florida Bar Journal - here's a link:

Fla Land Law now running

It took three days of part-time work, but the core functions of the Florida Land Law site are now available. We have a message board, an email-list-server for folk that prefer email for discussion, and the first set of links pages are up. More link pages can be added anytime.

Next steps are to get some "citizen guides" on line. I know that several different organizations and attorneys have put together information about how to deal with quasi-judicial hearings, what the steps in a comprehensive plan amendment are, and similar things.

I'll also start an invitation process next week and try to get some folks I know to visit, sign up for email and the discussion group, and get going.

That's all for a Saturday!
