Overcoming Williamson County's Troubling State Procedures Rule: How The England Reservation, Issue Preclusion Exceptions, And The Inadequacy Exception Open The Federal Courthouse Door To Ripe Takings Claims, J. David Breemer 2018 Florida State University College of Law

Overcoming Williamson County's Troubling State Procedures Rule: How The England Reservation, Issue Preclusion Exceptions, And The Inadequacy Exception Open The Federal Courthouse Door To Ripe Takings Claims, J. David Breemer

Florida State University Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law

This article discusses an avenue available to takings claimants so that they may open the nearly closed door of the federal courts. In Williamson County, the United States Supreme Court established two ripeness prongs that create powerful barriers to landowners seeking to have their takings claims heard on the merits in federal court. Through an in depth analysis of the facts and litigation of this case and others, the author assesses the foundation of the state procedures requirements and concludes it is not required by the Takings Clause. The article scrutinizes the rule's fundamental unfairness and error in its ...


Standing On Its Last Legs: Bennett V. Spear And The Past And Future Of Standing In Environmental Cases, Sam Kalen 2018 University of Baltimore School of Law

Standing On Its Last Legs: Bennett V. Spear And The Past And Future Of Standing In Environmental Cases, Sam Kalen

Florida State University Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law

This Article examines the evolution of standing in environmental disputes. The Article traces environmental standing from the 1970s when the "zone of interests" test was first applied in Association of Data Processing Service Organizations v. Camp, through Lujan v. Defenders of Wildlife over twenty years later, which outlined the three requirements of concrete and particularized imminent injury, traceability, and redressibility. The Article then describes how Bennett v. Spear, decided by the Supreme Court in1997, and other recent lower court decisions have produced a haphazard and incoherent approach to standing in cases involving the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the ...

Citizens United As Bad Corporate Law, Leo E. Strine Jr., Jonathan Macey 2018 Supreme Court of Delaware; University of Pennsylvania Law School

Citizens United As Bad Corporate Law, Leo E. Strine Jr., Jonathan Macey

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

In this Article we show that Citizens United v. FEC, arguably the most important First Amendment case of the new millennium, is predicated on a fundamental misconception about the nature of the corporation. Specifically, Citizens United v. FEC, which prohibited the government from restricting independent expenditures for corporate communications, and held that corporations enjoy the same free speech rights to engage in political spending as human citizens, is grounded on the erroneous theory that corporations are “associations of citizens” rather than what they actually are: independent legal entities distinct from those who own their stock. Our contribution to the literature ...


In Defense Of A Little Judiciary: A Textual And Constitutional Foundation For Chevron, Terence J. McCarrick Jr. 2018 University of San Diego

In Defense Of A Little Judiciary: A Textual And Constitutional Foundation For Chevron, Terence J. Mccarrick Jr.

San Diego Law Review

This Article hopes to help fill that “important gap in the administrative law literature.” And it proceeds in three parts. Part II offers a brief history of the Chevron doctrine and its discontents. It traces the doctrine’s origin and scope and ends by articulating the textualist and originalist critique of Chevron described above. Part III grapples with that criticism and offers a textualist and originalist defense of Chevron. Section III.A describes the textual footing for Chevron in the APA and argues that Chevron—if not commanded by the APA—does not upset the role it envisions for courts ...


Punitive Preemption And The First Amendment, Rachel Proctor May 2018 University of San Diego

Punitive Preemption And The First Amendment, Rachel Proctor May

San Diego Law Review

In recent years, state legislators have begun passing a new breed of “punitive” preemption laws–those that impose fines, civil and criminal sanctions, and other sanctions on local governments and their officials as a consequence of passing laws or enacting policies that are inconsistent with state laws. This represents a significant change from traditional preemption, under which a local government could enact laws based on its view of preempting state statutes and applicable state constitutional provisions and, if necessary, defend its interpretation in court. When punitive preemption prevents a local lawmaking process from taking place, the state forecloses a unique ...
