Corona del Mar couple told to lose the palapa, por favor

A decade-long battle between a Corona del Mar couple and the state Coastal Commission over a palapa (Spanish for hut) and other structures on a beachside strand has ended. The buildings must go, three judges ruled.

George and Sharlee McNamee had claimed that their property rights were under assault. They had the help of the Pacific Legal Foundation, which takes such issues to court and promises an appeal.

More details on the tiff here.
