Screenshot 2022-05-13 at 14-45-41 The Impact of Knick on Regulatory Takings and Those Pesky Lucas Exceptions - Property

Check this out: Pepperdine lawprof Shelley Saxer has a piece in Jotwell, “The Impact of Knick on Regulatory Takings and Those Pesky Lucas Exceptions,” a review of U. Hawaii lawprof David Callies’ book, “Regulatory Takings After Knick.”

The review is short and to the point, so we suggest you read it. But here’s a teaser:

This small but mighty book offers a concise history and understanding of takings jurisprudence as it stood before and after the Knick decision. It brings clarity to a convoluted chronicle of takings litigation and presents specific situations where litigants have asserted a total taking claim and the defense has relied on the various exceptions to Lucas.

Don’t miss it.
