Palazzolo v. Rhode Island,
In a closely watched 5-4 decision, on June 28, 2001, the Supreme Court of the United States found that an inverse condemnation action, brought by Petitioner Anthony Palazzolo (Palazzolo), was ripe for adjudication; that acquisition of the property after the effective date of a regulation did not bar a regulatory takings claim; and that Palazzolo's claim for deprivation of all economic use was precluded by the undisputed value left in his land.
