"Voting 5-4 along ideological lines, the court said Friday that property owners could go straight to a federal judge without first seeking compensation through state proceedings. The decision reversed a 1985 Supreme Court ruling, prompting a sharp dissent from the court’s liberal wing.No surprise that the Statists (liberals) screeched.
"Writing for the majority, Chief Justice John Roberts said the 1985 ruling placed an unjustifiable burden on property owners, preventing many of them from ever reaching federal court. That’s because resolution of a state court proceeding generally precludes any federal lawsuit over the constitutional ban on government taking of private property without just compensation, Roberts said." --quoting Bloomberg
