Here's what we're reading today:
- "Did the State of Michigan inversely condemn the entire City of Flint?: Environmental justice meets the Takings Clause" from lawprof Stephen Miller at Land Use Prof Blog (includes the complaint). Background: what is going on in Flint, Michigan?
- Gideon Kanner, on "The Right to Take Is 'Well Nigh Conclusive?' -- Says Who?" Also of interest from Gideon's Trumpet: "Trump Does Not Understand Eminent Domain Law," and "What's This Cruz-Trump Uproar Over Eminent Domain All About?"
- Lawprof Ilya Somin on the Trump/eminent domain thing: "Donald Trump’s lightweight defense of taking property for private development"
- We haven't said much about the Trump/eminent domain thing, and don't plan to say more than what we've already said in this post: "If You Are Even Thinking About Voting For Trump..." (our review of the docfilm "You've Been Trumped" about some Kelo-like shenanigans involving Mr. T in Scotland).
- "Takings: No Just Compensation for Lost Highway Access, Supreme Court Says" (via the State Bar of Wisconsin, about the recent Wisconsin Supreme Court eminent domain case we posted about here).
- Speaking of Wisconsin, here's the Northwest Land Law Forum's take on the SCOTUS denominator case: "Another Take on Takings: The U.S. Supreme Court to Consider How the 'Parcel as a Whole' Rule Applies to Historic Subdivisions."
Coming off a very busy last few days, so we'll be posting some other queued up opinions shortly.
