Today, in addition to listening to sessions on Ethics, jury presentations, and expert witnesses, we presented (along with Dave Breemer of Pacific Legal Foundation) a session on "Takings and the Police Power." Here are the links to the cases and articles I discussed in my portion of the presentation:
- Machine Gun Taking? Three Times The Pain, And Your Own Self To Blame (feat. Jimi Hendrix)
- South Carolina Convenience Store and SWAT: Damage Caused By Hostage Rescue Isn't A Taking
- Emergency Demolition Of Damaged Building Not A Taking
- Amerisource v. United States (taking of legal drugs) - Wait, I Thought The Police Power and the Public Use Clause Were "Coterminous"
- Lesson 1: Backup Your Hard Drive - Federal Circuit: Taking As A Result Of Police Power Isn't A Taking
- Where The Sidewalk Ends: Arizona Court of Appeals - The Takings Power Is Different Than The Police Power
- Alaska: Police Power Not A Blanket Exception To Takings Liability - State May Be Liable For Backfires
- Police Power (Not Just Regulatory Takings): Wisconsin: Cutting Off Highway Access Is Not Compensable, If The Property Isn't Totally Landlocked
- North Dakota SCT: Gov't Seizure A Function Of Police And Tax Power, Not Eminent Domain
- Pico and Crenshaw, Los Angeles: Hadacheck v. Sebastian
- The Armstrong principle - Armstrong v. United States, 364 U.S. 40 (1960).
