A Boost from the Unites States Supreme Court

Property owners' rights got a boost from the United State Supreme Court on June 21. The case, Knick v. Township of Scott, Pa, overturned 34 years of precedent, holding that a municipal ordinance deprived the owner of rights in her property, and most importantly determined that she was able to pursue this claim before waiting for years of State court litigation to conclude. An interesting side note was the concerns expressed by the dissenters, that the failure to follow precedent is a sign we can expect ground-breaking rulings by the Court as it gives less respect for its decisions from the past.
