NJ Supreme Court To Rule On Beach Dune Dispute

New Jersey’s top court is ready to make its ruling on whether homeowners should be compensated for losing ocean views when dunes are built.

The state Supreme Court announced Friday that it will issue an opinion Monday in the case of a Long Beach Island couple who sued and won $375,000 to make up for the view they lost when their town built a dunes.

The town, Harvey Cedars, appealed, saying that a house protected from a flood is more valuable than one that is not.

The home at the center of the case, belonging to Harvey and Phyllis Karan, survived Superstorm Sandy last October.

The case is closely watched in part because New Jersey wants to build a dune system along its entire coastline.
