Koontz v. St. John’s River Water Management District - Post-Argument SCOTUScast

At SCOTUScast, Richard A. Epstein, professor at New York University School of Law and professor emeritus at the University of Chicago Law, discusses the January 15, 2013 argument before the United States Supreme Court in Koontz v. St. John’s River Water Management District "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."
