Coronavirus And Eminent Domain

While sheltering in place with the rest of the world, I thought I would share some publications addressing interesting issues raised about the interplay between the government’s reaction to COVID-19 and the eminent domain law.  See below.

The Government’s Authority to Condemn Property to Combat the Coronavirus. 

Do Government Shutdowns for Coronavirus Invoke the Takings Clause?

Can Tenants Invoke the Condemnation Clause in Their Lease as a result of the Government Shutdown?

I do not necessarily endorse the opinions set forth in these articles, but I thought I’d pass them along to stimulate discussion and debate.  Let me know your thoughts, or if you have any additional issues you would like to share.

I hope you all remain healthy and safe.
