Knick Overrules Williamson County: What Does It Mean for Eminent Domain?
In June 2019, the Supreme Court overruled its Williamson County precedent, which required that property owners, as a practical matter, must bring their Fifth Amendment takings claims against state or local governments in state courts. The Court’s new decision, in Knick v. Township of Scott , allows them to bring their inverse condemnation claims directly in federal court. Panelists who pled both sides of this case will discuss their insights into this important decision and its ramifications.
