Has the US Supreme Court ever heard a case regarding government seizure of property for public use?



  1. 0 Votes

    The practice of a state government seizing private land for public use is well documented in a practice known as Emminent Domain. This theory states that a state may deprive a citizen of private property without their permission but only with due monetary compensation. The United States Constitution guarantees the government’s right to due this in the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment, which said land could only be used for public good. This theory is often employed during the construction of roadways and highways.
