Professor Shelley Saxer Speaks on Affordable Housing and Inverse Condemnation -- Hawai'i State Bar Association
Professor Shelley Ross Saxer presented "Affordable Housing -- How do we get there?" and "Inverse Condemnation and Paying for Disasters" at the Annual Meeting of the Hawai`i State Bar Association. Professor Saxer made both presentations at "The Real Property and Financial Services Seminar," which took place on October 18.
Excerpts from the Hawai'i State Bar Association Program:
Affordable Housing – How do we get there?
Shelley Saxer will summarize proposals about affordable housing and deregulation from three top land use articles in 2022-23.
The panel will then discuss how these ideas may be applicable, or not, to Hawai`i’s current affordable housing crisis and take questions from the attendees.
Inverse Condemnation and Paying for Disasters
This session will focus on the inverse condemnation claim asserted in at least one of the lawsuits against Hawaiian Electric Company as a result of the devastating wildfires in Lahaina. Shelley Saxer, who has written about the inverse condemnation claims in California that resulted in the bankruptcy of a major electricity supplier, will set the stage for a discussion of these claims and their applicability to Hawai`i’s jurisprudence. David Callies and Robert Thomas, experts in both land use and Hawai`i’s laws will discuss the potential judicial response to inverse condemnation claims as well as comment on other aspects of the litigation.
