Condemnation Blight Oral Argument Set

For those who can get to Key West on June 22, 2009, Florida's 3rd District Court of Appeal has scheduled oral arguments that day in Florida v. West, et al., in the new Key West courthouse. This is the 2008 "condemnation blight" decision that required the State to pay ten times its "good faith deposit," in 2004, for two parcels of land on North Key Largo that have been under a development moratorium since February 9, 1982!

Updated May 31, 2009. Please check our website,, to read the briefs before you make the trek to Key West. The State's Initial Brief is available, as is our Answer Brief, on the website. The State's Reply Brief is due on or before June 15, 2009.
