Scotusblog has the scoop on the Court's denial of cert in Drebick v. City of Olympia, an exactions case involving fees imposed on a new project to cover the cost of additional services. Frankly, it would be nice if the Court would hold off on granting cert on any takings cases for a few years so that (a) I can finally spend more time on my non-takings research interests and (b) we can all continue to beat the Kelo horse without any distractions. Maybe I should send a note to Chief Justice Roberts requesting that the Court take my research agenda into account in its cert decisions. A new takings case would be great two or three terms from now. In the meantime, though, let's leave this stuff to the lower courts.
