Check this out: Vermont lawprof John Echeverria has launched a blog about "Takings Litigation." Which, given the predilections of the author (organizer of the anti-takings conference, and recently presented with the Koontz Catatonia Award), probably should be called "Takings Defense" or the "No Takings Blog," but who are we to say?
Samples of recent posts:
- "Just when you thought the Koontz litigation couldn’t get any worse (see my article, Koontz: the Very Worst Takings Decision Ever?), the Florida Court of Appeals has issued a decision in the Koontz case on remand."
- "Importantly, the decision [Sherman v. Town of Chester] does not cast doubt on the general rule that when a litigant initially files a takings claim in federal court, the government defendant can raise Williamson County and insist that the takings claim be litigated in state court."
- "One thing seems clear about this case [Horne, on remand to the 9th Cir]: the Ninth Circuit reached the correct result. In no sane legal universe could it be said that the Hornes suffered the kind of economic injury at the hands of government that would justify a finding of a taking as a matter of “fairness and justice,” to quote the Supreme Court’s lodestar for taking cases."
You get the drift. We don't see a RSS feed link (our preferred -- if antiquated -- method for following blogs), but you can follow along with an email subscription.
