The Supreme Court today ruled against the Murrs, who owned a waterfront lot in Wisconsin, and claimed that the government took their land without just compensation.
Today’s ruling is adverse to the positions taken by a number of property rights advocates and a group of nine states, led by Nevada, which believed the case was important in preserving individual property rights.
One of the interesting issues addressed by the Court was the “whole parcel” question, or what part of the property can be considered when determining damage to the property.
We will discuss this case in more detail in Episode 3 of the Eminent Domain Podcast which will be released next week.
