6th Circuit Opinion on business disruptions
We have cases that we think are takings. This puts a serious damper on the litigation plan. I would be willing to help these plaintiffs.
The court held that:
Plaintiffs have not offered any argumentation as to why Defendants are not entitled to qualified immunity. Nor do they direct the Court to any caselaw indicating that Defendants’ various orders violated a clearly established constitutional right. And for good reason: there is no clearly established precedent that pandemic-era regulations limiting the use of individuals’ commercial properties can constitute a Fifth Amendment taking. In fact, the overwhelming majority of caselaw indicates that such regulations are not takings.
I hope they appeal. The opinion is here.
