This chapter deals with 1981 cases involving disputes over property. Cases involving the detachment and attachment of land continue to dominate the property chapter with 11 cases reported, the same number summarized in last year's chapter. One case involving school board referenda raised the interesting question of whether or not a state could issue bonds for the repair of a school building after voters in the district had twice rejected bond referenda for that purpose. In addition to the usual zoning, construction, and school closure cases, this year's chapter includes a case involving the providing of air conditioning for a multihandicapped elementary school student who could not control his body temperature and two cases in which the Ku Klux Klan sought award of attorney's fees for civil rights suits in connection with denial of the use of school facilities for patriotic meetings.
