Tarik M. Kershah
School District Board of Education v. Village
Trial victory obtained in favor of a school district, allowing the construction of a multi-million dollar sports, storage and bus facility project to proceed. This dispute arose after the village revised its zoning code during the district’s planning process for the new facility. Bricker attorneys Nelson Reid and Tarik Kershah established that the facility would have been permitted under the previous zoning code, the district has immunity from the village’s zoning code under the Brownfield Doctrine, and also brought to light the minimal impact that the overall project would have on the surrounding area.
