Abstract

Professor emeritus at the University of Maine School of Law, Orlando Delogu, argues against a 1984 court case that limited public access to Moody Beach in Wells. His new book, Maine's Beaches Are Public Property: The Bell Case Must be Reexamined, posits that the Maine Supreme Court issued a flawed judgement and that the beaches in Maine should be open to the public.
