The US Supreme Court reheard oral arguments on whether a property owner can have a federal court decide an inverse condemnation case without first exhausting state remedies. In Knick v. Twp. of Scott, the property owner alleged that the enactment of a law constituted an inverse condemnation. SCOTUS first heard argument on the case on October 3, 2018 before Justice Kavanaugh’ confirmation. After his confirmation, the Court ordered a second round of oral argument. The property owner, represented by the Pacific Legal Foundation, seeks to overturn the Supreme Court Case Williamson County v. Hamilton Bank which held that federal courts may only hear inverse condemnation cases after a state court has decided the issue.
