Litigation Support
State CourtsBankruptcy Courts
Federal CourtsAdministrative Proceedings

FSC provides administrative litigation support for proceedings before local, state and federal administrative boards, agencies and commissions. Litigation support is provided for both legislative-type proceedings (rulemakings) and adjudications (contested cases).

FSC's specific activities in regulatory proceedings involving electric, natural gas and telecommunications utilities are presented elsewhere.

In recent years, FSC has been retained to provide expert economic testimony involving environmental, community planning and zoning, consumer protection, and related issues.

FSC has testified before:

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources on the impact of a water withdrawal permit requested by IBP (a meat packing plant) on the Jordan aquifer;

A county Board of Commissioners regarding zoning issues involved with an application for a major sub-division development in a small rural Oregon community;

The Administrator of the Iowa Consumer Credit Code assessing the consumer impacts of a proposal to permit additional charges for involuntary unemployment insurance;
A special state master regarding the dollar damages incurred by the Native Hawaiians Homeland Trust attributable to trust mismanagement;
A state Banking Board opposing proposed rules increasing permissible interest rates charged by small loan companies to 36 percent;
The Burlington (Vermont) city council regarding the availability of affordable rental housing in the community;
A state Department of Water, Air and Waste Management regarding the sufficiency of the terms of a proposed NPDES water permit for Young Radiator Company;
A special state claims board regarding the damages suffered by individual native Hawaiians resulting from their unlawful denial of homesteads;

A local zoning board of appeals regarding the appropriate planning processes needed to support the proposed construction (and thus special permit) for a high voltage transmission line within city limits.
