  • William Perry Pendley"The New Wars for the West" - Keynote Address by William Perry Pendley, Esq., President and Chief Legal Officer, Mountain States Legal Foundation, Lakewood, Colorado; Eleventh Annual National Conference on Private Property Rights (PRFA, Albany, N.Y., October 13, 2007)
    Perry Pendley successfully defended John Shuller against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service when, in self-defense, he shot a grizzly bear. He won the case for Larry Squires, who wanted to allow disposal of oil field brine in dry sink holes on his property. Mountain States Legal Foundation is fighting for inholder access to their property blocked by the U.S. Forest Service. Pendley has argued successfully three times before the U.S. Supreme Court on the right of contract regardless of race or ethnicity, against what is called "affirmative action."

The "let it burn" policies and the tax burdens to the diminishing property owners are having a profound impact on rural communities faced with Open Space protection. Buyers become scarce for conservation easement land, and tax liens and litigation to try to terminate the covenant lie ahead.
