This has been a blockbuster U.S. Supreme Court term for property law, with the Court deciding three major property cases: Tyler v. Hennepin County (government’s keeping the excess value when seizing and selling a home to satisfy a property tax debt is a taking), Wilkins v. United States (is the federal Quiet Title Act’s statute of limitations a jurisdictional bar?), and Sackett v. EPA (the scope of Clean Water Act wetlands jurisdiction).
To gain a better understanding of these opinions, the current state of takings and property law, and what these cases mean for your practice, join a distinguished panel of experts for this one-hour webcast. The faculty will also explore what these decisions mean for the future and what steps lawyers can take to incorporate these decisions into their practices.
A faculty composed of academics and private practitioners – including the director of property rights at the firm that litigated all three cases – will discuss:
- What happened in each case and how the Court ruled
- The practical consequences of the decisions
- What new rules practitioners must understand
- What Sackett means for the efforts to define “Waters of the United States”
- How courts will treat the question of “what is the property” in takings and eminent domain litigation
- How you can avoid statute of limitations problems
- Where the Supreme Court might be going next and what issues remain open
