HGS Represents Homeowners in Private Property Suit Against County

Posted Thursday, April 9th, 2015

On April 8, 2015, Walton County homeowners Tammy and Lionel Alford sued to uphold the Walton County White Sand Protection Zone Ordinance and private property rights. The couple’s suit seeks a declaratory judgment that a controversial beach nourishment project would violate the White Sand Protection Zone Ordinance by placing off-color, shell-laden sand on the County’s famous white beaches, and ultimately seeks to halt the project. Walton Beach Nourishment, a coalition that opposes the project, is supporting the homeowners’ lawsuit. Hopping Green & Sams (HGS) attorney D. Kent Safriet is representing the homeowners and is a spokesperson for Walton Beach Nourishment.

A full press release on the filing is available here.
