The Knick Case — Big News from the Big Court

Calling all takings junkies!

The US Supreme Court has ordered re-argument in Knick v. Township of Scott, and ordered the parties to file additional short letter-briefs by the end of November. Our colleague, Robert Thomas has put the Court’s full order in his blog www.inversecondemnation.com. So if you have an interest in regulatory takings, get over to that blog and get it straight from the horse’s mouth. We recommend you do so, because the re-argument order goes into some detail as to what information the Court wants. Mr. Thomas provides a helpful explanation and commentary.

We presume that this time Justice Kavanaugh will participate in the re-argument, so the court will be up to full strength in the re-argument. For a copy of the full court order restoring The Knick case to the calendar go to https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/110218zr_bpm1.pdf
