Arlington Heights Vs. Metropolitan Housing Dev. Corp.

Court : US Supreme Court

Decided on : Jan-11-1977

..... the housing and community development act of 1974. see n 2, supra. [ footnote 8 ] petitioners contend that mhdc lacks standing to pursue its claim here because a contract purchaser whose contract is contingent upon rezoning cannot contest a zoning decision in the illinois courts. under the law of illinois, only the owner of the property has standing to pursue such ..... . petitioners nonetheless appear to argue that mhdc lacks standing because it has suffered no economic injury. mhdc, they point out, is not the owner of the property in question. its contract of purchase is contingent upon securing rezoning. [ footnote 8 ] mhdc owes the owners nothing if rezoning is denied. we cannot accept petitioners' argument. in the first place, it ..... here there can be little doubt that mhdc meets the constitutional standing requirements. the challenged action of the petitioners stands as an absolute barrier to constructing the housing mhdc had contracted to place on the viatorian site. if mhdc secures the injunctive relief it seeks, that barrier will be removed. an injunction would not, of course, guarantee that lincoln ..... contingent upon mhdc's securing zoning clearances from the village and 236 housing assistance from the federal government. if mhdc proved unsuccessful in securing either, both the lease and the contract of sale would lapse. the agreement established a bargain purchase price of $300,000, low enough to comply with federal limitations governing land-acquisition costs for 236 housing. .....

hill v. garner. - 434 u.s. 989 (1977) u.s. supreme court hill v. garner. , 434 u.s. 989 (1977) 434 u.s. 989 sharon hill v. david max garner no. 77-132 supreme court of the united states december 12, 1977 the appeal is dismissed for want of a substantial federal question. mr. justice white, with whom mr. justice brennan joins, dissenting. page 434 u.s. 989 , 990 in 1929 this court held that connecticut's guest statute did not violate the equal protection clause, because it could not be said that "no grounds exist[ed] for the distinction" between gratuitous passengers in automobiles and those in other classes of vehicles. silver v. silver, 280 u.s. 117, 123 (1929). while that decision for a while foreclosed federal equal protection challenges to the guest statutes of the various states, in recent years the issue of the constitutional validity of these statutes has been frequently litigated in state courts with conflicting results. since 1971 the highest courts of no fewer than 6 states have concluded that their guest statutes violated the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment,2 while during the same period similar statutes page 434 u.s. 989 , 991 have been upheld against federal constitutional attack in 10 states. [ footnote 3 ] typical of those decisions striking down the guest statutes is brown v. merlo, 8 cal.3d 855, 106 cal.rptr. 388, 506 p.2d 212 (1973), in which the california supreme court concluded that the classifications created by the challenged .....
