The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Murr v. Wisconsin, a case that concerns when the government must compensate private property owners for land-use regulations that prohibit how a person’s property can be used or sold.

The issue is the Fifth Amendment’s Takings Clause and whether adjoining lots of land, owned by the same person or group, should be considered separately or together when deciding if land-use restrictions amount to a regulatory taking requiring the government to pay the landowners. The Fifth Amendment requires “just compensation” when the government takes private property for public use.

On June 23, 2017, the court by a 5-3 margin upheld Wisconsin land-use regulations controlling how private property owners can use or sell their property, ruling “no regulatory taking occurred here"; therefore, the Fifth Amendment’s Takings Clause that requires "just compensation” did not arise in this case. close
