Co-presented by the Real Estate Law Students Group

The Kratovil Conference will consider the implications for the real estate industry and its attorneys as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2019 decision, Knick v. Township of Scott. This decision opened the door to takings suits in federal courts by eliminating the state-action ripeness requirement, which forced most landowners to seek remedies for overly broad state and local land use regulations in often-unsympathetic state courts.

 

Because property owners no longer need to seek a state remedy before filing a takings claims in federal court, the question is: Will there be a flood of lawsuits filed in federal court challenging federal, state, and local regulations that restrict private land development? Presenters at the Conference will include attorneys who represented Knick and the Township of Scott, Pennsylvania, as well as advocates who filed amicus briefs on behalf of individuals whose rights would be affected by the decision. A panel of practitioners will explore how the decision will affect their clients.

About the Kratovil Conference on Real Estate Law & Practice
The Kratovil Conference on Real Estate Law & Practice (the “Kratovil”) was established in 1994 to honor the memory of Robert Kratovil, the Dean of the Chicago’s real estate attorneys who served as Chicago Title’s Chief Underwriter before ending his career as a member of The John Marshall Law School’s faculty.
