Katie Edwards-Walpole and Neil Schiller, members of the Firm’s Real Estate Practice, are quoted in this Law360 article discussing a case with the potential to go to the U.S. Supreme Court. The case concerns the access to a California billionaire’s beachfront property.

According to Katie, it is possible the high court will hear the case.

"In Florida, we value private property rights ... [and] we feel like the judicial system is a good forum for adjudicating those types of disputes," said Katie.

Neil advocated for the case to be elevated.  

"If it goes there, I think it gives private property owners that have beachfront property ... a better, more clear idea of ... where their rights start and stop and where the public's rights start and stop,” said Neil. “Having the court really sort of make that line brighter and more distinct will be helpful.”
