A property rights attorney who has spent much of his career challenging the California Coastal Commission is now asking the U.S. Supreme Court to declare the commission unconstitutional in its structure. Ronald Zumbrun, representing the Marine Forests Society, petitioned the Supreme Court after losing his case at the state's highest court in June. He argues that the commission, which regulates development along the state's 1,100-mile coast, violates the state Constitution's separation of powers.

California's coast has withstood huge waves and oil spills, bikini contests and infestations of dead squid. But it will take the state Supreme Court and the Legislature to save it from a legal attack that won a curious victory Monday in the state 3rd District Court of Appeal. For three decades the state Coastal Commission has protected Californians' sandy beaches and rocky coves from overreaching developers and every variety of shortsighted profiteer.

The commission believes there is reason to appeal, even though the state Legislature may soon fix a constitutional problem at the heart of the case. A bill to remedy the problem could receive final legislative approval and land on Gov.

As a child crossing the English Channel with his family to immigrate to America, Peter M. Douglas was mesmerized by the churning seas and his first sighting of a whale, an experience that he said forged an "intangible, unbreakable, lifelong bond" with the ocean that deepened as he grew up in Southern California. That fondness for the ocean would later lead him to become one of the fiercest and most controversial guardians of the state's 1,100-mile-long coastline who battled to preserve its natural beauty and public access to its beaches.
