Running Time: 00:17:51

Richard EpsteinOn January 15, 2013 the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Koontz v. St. John’s River Water Management District. This case raises two questions regarding the power of land-use agencies with respect to development permits: 1) whether denial of a permit for failure to comply with government conditions constitutes a “taking” of property under the Fifth Amendment; and 2) whether certain nexus and proportionality tests set forth by the Supreme Court apply in such circumstances.

To discuss the case, we have Richard Epstein, professor at New York University School of Law and professor emeritus at the University of Chicago Law School.
