Court Decision Private Beach Public Access
opens pdf

Summary: This case upholds the puplic trust doctrine.
The public trust doctrine recognizes that certain resources- such as the ocean, navitagable rivers and their shores--are held in trust by the government for public's use and enjoyment. Under this ancient legal doctrine, the government cannot defeat or alienate the publics right, even through the sale or grant of submerged or tidal lands.
