CASE ENTRY

Chmielewski v. City of St. Pete Beach

St. Pete Beach, Fla. officials encourage the public to trespass on privately owned beachfront property. Does the city have to pay the owners? Jury: You bet. Pay $1.5 million. Eleventh Circuit: Affirmed. And for its money, the city gets a permanent easement across the parcel.
