Meredith v. Talbot County

ELR Citation: 18 ELR 21393
Nos. No. CG 0510, (Md. Cir. Ct., 07/14/1988)

The court holds that a developer's challenge to a county's refusal to allow residential development on a portion of its land pursuant to the Chesapeake Bay Critical Area Protection Program is barred by the developer's prior agreement not to build on this land. The court rejects the developer's claim that it accepted this agreement under duress to meet the Critical Area Program's deadline for submitting development plans.
