Press Releases

We are pleased to announce that Kandice Hull will be the live webinar presenter on “Is Your Township Prepared for More De Facto Takings Claims?” on Thursday, June 4, 2020 PSATS Webinar at 12 pm (EDT).

This webinar will discuss the potential for increased litigation over takings claims against townships in light of the recent U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Knick v. Township of Scott. In that case, a Pennsylvania township adopted an ordinance that a resident claimed was a de facto taking of her property without just compensation.  Additionally, the Pennsylvania appellate courts have issued a spate of recent decisions concerning de facto condemnation claims.  In this webinar, Kandice will review what these decisions may mean for Pennsylvania municipalities and ways in which municipalities can better protect themselves from potential takings claims.
