I will test for Horwitz's subsidy thesis in the weakening of common law protections to private property owners to favor emergent entrepreneurial industrial uses of property. I will also test for Louise Halper's and Christine Rosen's hypotheses that courts' increasing use of the "balancing doctrine" facilitated their favoring emergent over longstanding industrial uses of property. With luck I'll be mucking about in both archives and marshes (with hipwaders) for the next couple years!
