The conservative Pacific Legal Foundation of Sacramento has created the Wade Hopping Institute for Private Property Rights in Stuart to beef up its presence in Florida.
The institute is named for longtime Tallahassee industry lobbyist Wade Hopping, who died two years ago from complications from a stroke and esophageal cancer. Hopping, founder of Hopping Green & Sams in Tallahassee and a former Florida Supreme Court justice, served on the board and was a past president of the Pacific Legal Foundation.
One of the goals of the Hopping Institute goals was the establishing of a network of pro bono, experienced Florida land use attorneys that would serve as counsel to property owners requiring legal assistance to defend against property rights abuses at the trial or administrative level. No other existing Florida pro bono program targets assisting ordinary citizens in the defense of their property and economic rights.
