New York Landowners Seeking Plaintiffs for "Takings" Lawsuit Against State

This week the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York, Inc. (JLCNY) announced that they are seeking landowner plaintiffs for a lawsuit against New York State.  JLCNY announced in early February its plan to sue the state.  According to JLCNY, the lawsuit “will focus on claims where the failure  to grant [high-volume hydraulic fracturing] permits has deprived landowners of all economically viable uses of their real property or interfered with reasonable  investment-backed expectations.”  The Associated Press recently reported on the fear shared by many New York landowners that a “golden opportunity” has passed due to the state rulemaking delay.
