koontz, v., st., johns, river, water, management, district:, read, full, opinion, here, Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District:

In Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District, the Supreme Court reviewed whether a land-use agency can be held liable for a taking when it refused to issue a land-use permit on the sole basis that the permit applicant did not accede to a permit condition.

The vote is 5-4.

The holding: The government’s demand for property from a land use permit applicant must satisfy the Nolan and Dolan requirements even when it denies the permit.
