Supreme Court Grants Cert on Regulatory Takings Case
The Supreme Court today granted cert in Stop the Beach Renourishment v. Florida Department of Environmental Protection. (HT: Jonathan Adler at the VC). The Florida Supreme Court's decision is available here.
Argh! My summer is already booked. I don't have time for this.
UPDATE: I read the Florida Supreme Court decision and couldn't figure out why they granted cert. The case is all about state law issues. Then I looked at the cert petitions, which focused on the judicial takings issue. If the grant does raise judicial takings, then this has the potential to be a very important case. For those new to the issue, check out the best article on the subject, Barton H. Thompson, Jr., Judicial Takings, 76 Virginia Law Review 1449 (1990).
