Over the past several months, we've been following some of the recent takings cases that have made their way up to the United States Supreme Court. So where do things currently stand? As you've likely heard, the Court issued its decision in Arkansas Game & Fish Commission v. United States (see our summary here); we're waiting for a decision after oral argument in Koontz v. St. John's River Management District (see our summary here); and just this week, the Court heard oral argument in Horne v. U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.
If you're looking for an excellent summary of the Horne oral argument and the issues the Court is grappling with (including what the heck is a raisin handler), our colleague Robert Thomas has an excellent summary on his blog, www.inversecondemnation.com. Be sure to check it out here. He's provided a much better synopsis than I could ever write up, so I'll just leave it at that.
