Oregon Judge Rules Measure 37 Is Unconstitutional

Marion County Circuit Judge Mary James ruled last week that Measure 37, a regulatory takings ballot initiative that was approved by Oregon voters last year, violates both the Oregon and United States Constitutions.  The opinion is available here.  Proponents of Measure 37 will appeal.  I'm really not up on ballot initiative law, so I don't have a view either way about whether the judge was correct.
