Bryan Wenter Land use lawyer Bryan Wenter recently weighed in on the Knick v. Township of Scott SCOTUS opinion.

SAN FRANCISCO—Earlier this summer, the Supreme Court of the United States decided Knick v. Township of Scott, PA, 588 US (case number 17-647), a closely watched property rights case that was argued first in October of 2018 and again in January of 2019. Knick addressed the requirement, established in Williamson County Regional Planning Commission v. Hamilton Bank of Johnson City, 473 US 172 (1985), that property owners must seek just compensation under state law in state court before bringing a federal takings claim under 42 USC section 1983.
