"Supreme Court's Regulatory Takings Case Draws Widespread Interest"

"More than half of the nation's state attorneys general and two dozen interest groups have weighed in on a high-profile regulatory takings case that the Supreme Court will hear in December.

Solicitor General Elena Kagan, attorneys general from 26 states, the National Association of Counties, the National League of Cities, the U.S. Conference of Mayors and others filed friend-of-the-court briefs yesterday in Stop the Beach Renourishment v. Florida, which turns on whether Florida's Supreme Court violated the Constitution's regulatory takings clause when it upheld a plan to create a state-owned public beach between private waterfront land and the Gulf of Mexico."
