U.S. Supreme Court Hears Arguments In Wisconsin Case

An Eau Claire family will be in Washington, D-C, tomorrow (Monday), hearing their case argued before the U-S Supreme Court.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court declined to handle the case on property rights. The Pacific Legal Foundation is representing the Murr family for free. The question is whether a cottage and an extra lot the family owns on Lake St. Croix should be considered two separate parcels of property. Their attorney says St. Croix County has basically taken their property away through some strict shoreline development and conservation rules. He says the family should be compensated.
