Much of land use law involves questions over the breadth of local government powers. Today, we're looking at a spat between two units of local government: a municipality and a school board. The decision in Gurba v. Community High School District No. 155, 2014 Ill. App. 2d 140098 (September 3, 2014) from Illinois addresses the reach of a City's zoning laws to a football stadium project undertaken by the local school board.

Peter Erlinder knew he was taking a risk when he traveled in May to take on a controversial case in Rwanda, a country in east-central Africa that still is recovering from the violence in 1994 that left hundreds of thousands of people dead and millions more in refugee camps.Erlinder, a professor at William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, Minn., is intimately familiar with Rwanda’s violent recent history and its roots in centuries-old tribal conflict between the Tutsis, a minority group that traditionally held power in the country, and the Hutus, who make up some 85 percent of the population.
