Are zoning laws laws?
I am guessing if something is termed a law, there is a high probability it is a law.
The article linked refers to them as ordinances
, which are essentially laws it appears.
If they are laws and he violated them, he would have no basis for a law suit.
Agreed, but people will do what they know in a litigious society.
He won in court.
LOL, what? Source for that? I linked a wiki page earlier that states it was settled out of court. How is that a win "in court"?? It should be noted
that the settlement lowered the height of the pole 10'... which would mean it is still in violation of the same codes, assuming they have not been
changed since the settlement in 2007
Why? Because the city violated the zoning laws not Trump.
I cannot speak to whether or not they selectively acted against Trump or not. There is little beyond just this instance and this one is only notable
because it's Trump. But please provide your proof of this statement.
The zoning laws in question, I do not agree with. They give private business property "taking" rights; that which used to be limited to only
government interest for building roads, etc. We should turn back these laws which have aided private devlopers at the cost of property rights
contained in the constitutiton.
Not too sure what this says, but I do agree with the part I do understand: the law is
silly. However that does not mean you can just
break it and do whatever you want. Change the law through the appropriate ways and channels.
