No, Not all Takings ARE the Same

Supreme Court jurisprudence on takings and public use has been complicated in the twentieth century by movement activists attempting to use the takings clause to deregulate land use. While this activism has received a good deal of scholarly attention, much of the politics around land use and takings has occurred in other areas of property rights law. This paper will discuss some of this litigation as well as offer a different approach to understanding property rights activism. Laura Hatcher is an Associate Professor of Political Science at Southeast Missouri State University.

Her current research focuses on property rights activism and lawsuits arising in post-disaster contexts. Her work has appeared in Current Legal Issues, the Fordham Journal for Law and Policy, the Journal of Applied Social Science; and, along with Professor Randolph Burnside of Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, Journal of Public Management and Social Policy on disaster management. She has also co-edited a volume with Wayne MacIntosh of the University of Maryland, Property Rights, and Neoliberalism: Cultural Demands and Legal Actions (Routledge Press).

In addition to her academic work, she consults on litigation and is the editor of the blog Disasters, Property, and Politics.
