Case Summary Citation

130 S. Ct. 2592 (2010)

Abstract

A homeowners association sued the state of Florida to stop a beach restoration project that would have created seventy-five feet of new beach separating the private homes from the ocean front. The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the homeowners‟ argument that the project was an unlawful taking because it would end the homeowners‟ ability to receive new sand deposits from the ocean onto their private beachfront. The Court held that the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution applies equally to court orders and decisions of the judicial branch as it does to actions of the legislative and executive branches.
