Resolving State/Local Governmental Conflict—A Tale of Three Cities

Abstract

There is no reason to suppose that local variations in this field are significantly different from those in other areas of the law, or that the benefits of a search for general principles are less substantial. Indeed, in most judicial resolutions of state-local conflict, the relevant statutory and constitutional provisions are so general that there is usually significant room for the exercise of judicial discretion and judgment. Hence, comparative analysis may be of value in the search for underlying principles.
