Zoning Finality: Reconceptualizing Res Judicata Doctrine in Land Use Cases

Zoning Finality: Reconceptualizing Res Judicata Doctrine in Land Use Cases

Courts universally recognize this problem, but they do so implicitly. Typically, courts pay homage to the principle that res judicata doctrine applies to zoning determinations, but then carve out an exception for changed applications—an exception that could easily swallow the rule. The result is that neighbors may not rely on claim preclusion doctrine to prevent a zoning board from hearing a separate application for development on the same parcel. Hilltop Terrace Homeowner’s Ass’n v. Island County 102 is illustrative. Seven months after the board of county commissioners denied a conditional-use permit to a cell phone provider seeking to build a tower in a rural residential zone, the board approved a new proposal for the same site, concluding that it was not bound by res judicata principles. 103 In rejecting the neighbors’ challenge to the approval, the Washington Supreme Court agreed with the board, emphasizing that the second application “substituted a fundamentally different kind of structure, completely rerouted the access road to the site, significantly increased setbacks, and changed the number and kind of antennae.” 104 Although the court indicated that res judicata principles apply to zoning applications, the court’s conclusion that “a second application may be considered if there is a substantial change in circumstances or conditions relevant to the application or a substantial change in the application itself” 105 undermines its argument that claim preclusion principles apply. After all, in Hilltop Terrace itself, both proposals were for cell phone towers, and every feature of the approved application could have been placed before the board at the time of the

Res Judicata and ADR

Res Judicata and ADR

expresses a concept of private justice that no one ought to be troubled or harassed twice for one and the same cause 5 . While these two maxims are often used together, they reflect two distinct policies 6 , one protecting the judicial system as a whole, and the other protecting individual litigants. The third maxim is transit in rem judicatam, which means that after judgment a cause of action passes into (or becomes) a res judicata. In modern times this third maxim is usually expressed in the language of merger: after judgment a cause of action is extinguished and merges with the judgment. Put together they emphasise the importance of judgments in court proceedings. A judgment binds the parties, so they cannot thereafter sue a second time if their first claim was defeated, or contest issues in later proceedings that were decided in earlier litigation. If a claim was successful, the rights and obligations of the parties are now defined by the judgment, and they cannot revert to their original positions and start again. There has to be finality in litigation.

Reactive Power Management Strategies with Res in Islanded Microgrid

Reactive Power Management Strategies with Res in Islanded Microgrid

Fig. 1. Equivalent circuit of parallel connected VSIs. There are only few papers describing reactive power sharing between parallel operating converters in islanded ac MGs. The researchers focused on ERPS between all RES usually controlled by MG central control unit or implemented as virtual impedances. From the other hand, researches consider reactive power sharing in order to optimize transmission power losses by appropriate optimization algorithm (e.g., particle swarm optimization), which can be neglected in MGs, hence the short distances and the line impedances are low.
