On January 9, 2024, Nancie G. Marzulla joined David P. Lanferman, Partner at Rutan & Tucker LLP, on the Federalist Society’s webinar Courthouse Steps Oral Argument: Sheetz v. County of El Dorado, CA

They analyzed how oral argument went before the Court that same day in Sheetz v. County of El Dorado, CA, a property-rights challenge by a California landowner to nearly $24,000 in development fees levied by the county as a condition for receiving a permit to build a manufactured home.

In this case, the Supreme Court will determine whether a monetary exaction imposed by a local government as a condition for a building permit is exempt from the “essential nexus” and “rough proportionality” requirements established in Nollan v. Cal. Coastal Comm’n and Dolan v. City of Tigard, simply because the exaction is authorized by local legislation.
