A review of cases involving higher education property matters shows that many are concerned with building construction, equipment installation, or repair contracts. A number of other cases involve routine conflicts between colleges or universities and other governmental entities over matters such as requests for special exceptions to zoning regulations, challenges to new telephone connection rates, and requests for duty exemption for imported equipment. Two cases involve the rights and values of individuals in conflict with the prerogatives of institutions. One was an attempt to block the construction of a building on the site of the Kent State University (Ohio) tragedy of 1970. The other involved an effort to prevent a Dallas (Texas) community college board from carrying out plans to tear down three buildings of historic value. (Author/MLF)
