Mallery & Zimmerman is pleased to announce that attorneys Ron Stadler, Aaron Graf and Jon Sacks obtained a significant victory for Trampealeau County Environment & Land Use Committee before the Wisconsin Supreme Court on issues of land use, zoning and local control in AllEnergy Corp., et al. v. Trampealeau County Environment & Land Use Committee, 2017 WI 52. This was the third successive court that ruled in Trampealeau County’s favor. In sum, each court decided that, under Wisconsin law, the committee acted appropriately in denying a conditional use permit and there was no reason to overturn the committee’s decision on certiorari review. In particular, the Supreme Court recognized the importance of local control over such decisions and the long-standing principles of providing these bodies some discretion and according their decisions deference. It was encouraging to see that the Supreme Court declined to change Wisconsin law and maintained Wisconsin’s adherence to leaving such decisions in the hands of local bodies so long as the body complies with certiorari review principles. The decision obtained by these Mallery & Zimmerman attorneys contributes to developing Wisconsin case law on some cutting-edge issues related to land use and zoning.
A copy of the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decision in the case can be found here.
Please join us in congratulating Ron, Aaron and Jon.
