Murr v. Wisconsin: The Supreme Court's Latest "Take" on Takings

In Murr v. Wisconsin, the Court ruled 5-3 that a Wisconsin "lot merger" regulation was not an unconstitutional taking as applied to two contiguous parcels, one of which the owners wanted to sell while retaining the other. Rejecting the competing "bright-line rule" positions offered by the owners and the State of Wisconsin, Justice Kennedy announced a new multi-factor test to determine the extent of the appropriate "denominator" in takings claims involving merger provisions applied to contiguous parcels.
This webinar will review the facts and ruling in Murr, discuss the dissenting Justices' criticisms of Kennedy's test, and the implications of the Murr ruling both on how state and local governments regulate contiguous parcels and ways that owners of contiguous parcels may react to the ruling.
