Fane Lozman, former Marine, commodities trader and civic activist, won his case before the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday. He’s on the front page of The Miami Herald today.
In a 7-2 decision, the Supremes decided the city of Riviera Beach, where Lozman used to live, could not regulate Lozman’s former home as a maritime vessel.
The court concluded that Riviera Beach went too far when it used maritime law to seize and eventually destroy Lozman’s houseboat.
Congrats to our Belle Isle neighbor, who spends a lot of time at Nine Island Avenue.
You may remember that Lozman got into a dust-up last year with KW Property Management at Nine Island, when his Ducati motorcycle disappeared from the parking garage. When he brought up the theft at a condo board meeting, he said the building management tried to shut him up and called Miami Beach police.
As we blogged back then — Lozman isn’t a guy to be taken lightly.
