Prof. Joshua Hawley

Prof. Joshua Hawley has published an article in the Cato Supreme Court Review arguing that the Supreme Court’s Takings Clause jurisprudence needs serious reform. Prof. Hawley explains why the court’s landmark 1985 decision Williamson County v. Hamilton Bank, which held that property owners must seek payment from the government before filing a takings claim, misunderstood two centuries of precedent and the meaning of the Takings Clause.
