Program Description

Minnesota Supreme Court: March 2011 Decisions. This program will review the decisions of the Minnesota Supreme Court handed down during March, 2011. Topics include: Zoning ordinance modifying Rochester airport "safety zone" constitutes a taking since diminution in value of adjoining property was substantial. A mutual mistake of material fact does not warrant recision of the contract when the mistake is to mere value--even though the contract accidentally included two parcels of land worth twice the value of the contract. When consent is at issue, the court may receive expert testimony as to the typical behavior of sexual assault victims. We'll also look at when property is "acquired" by a tax-exempt entity so as to exempt the property from taxation. Finally, we'll take a look at the court's reluctant order of March 9 continuing the "temporary" $100 increase on Minnesota Attorney Registration fees. There will be opportunities for participants to submit questions during the program. One hour.
