To all who were able to join today's ABA Section of Real Property, Trust and Estate's Condemnation, Zoning and Land Use Committee's call on the AIG takings trial, currently pending in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, thank you. Here are the links to the stories, analysis, and materials I mentioned:
- The original complaint, first filed in the CFC in November 2011.
- Second Amended Complaint in the CFC case, along with Mr. Boies' quote that this will be "an easy case to litigate." We described the case as "audacious," if only because it seeks $25 billion in just compensation.
- Professor Gideon Kanner's (who has been following this case more closely than we have) first thoughts on the complaint.
- The CFC's Opinion and Order granting in part and denying in part the United States' motion to dismiss.
- The Opinion & Order of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York which dismissed the district court case.
