Property Rights Case

NPR's Nina Totenberg reports on the case of a Rhode Island man who wants to build seaside homes on his land there. Most of the property is tidelands, and the state says he can't build there. Now the case is going before Supreme Court, and some say the decision could be an important one in the battle between property rights advocates and conservationists.
