*"Told their treehouse must go, owners appeal to Supreme Court. WASHINGTON  

— Lynn Tran and Richard Hazen built a Florida beachfront treehouse that would 

be the envy of any child. It’s got two levels, hammocks and windows looking out 

on the Gulf of Mexico.

But the hangout has cost the couple a handsome sum: about $30,000 to 

construct and probably five times that in legal fees as they’ve fought local 

authorities over it, Tran said. Now, they’re at their last stop, the Supreme Court. 

Unless the high court intervenes, the treehouse must be torn down. The justices 

had their first opportunity to consider taking the case at a closed-door 

conference Friday, and a decision on whether they will weigh in could come as 

early as Monday.

The couple’s lawyer, David Levin, acknowledges the case is unlikely to be 

accepted by the justices, who only hear argument in about 80 of the thousands 

of cases they’re asked to take each year. But he argues that his clients’ rights 

were violated when a Florida court “rubber stamped” a ruling proposed by the 

city of Holmes Beach without any evidence of independent consideration."
