Williamson County Regional Planning Commission V. Hamilton Bank of Johnson City - Subsequent History

Subsequent History

In San Remo Hotel v. City and County of San Francisco, a majority of the Court held that the Full Faith and Credit Statute bars relitigating a Fifth Amendment takings claim in federal court, after just compensation has been denied in state court proceedings. This seemed to bear out the views of commentators who saw Williamson County's second prong as extinguishing federal takings claims, rather than ripening them. Writing for a four-justice concurrence, Chief Justice Rehnquist noted that the impact of the Court's holding could preclude aggrieved property owners from having their federal takings claim considered by any court, and called for the Court to reconsider Williamson County's state procedures doctrine "in an appropriate case." Although the issue has been presented in several petitions for certiorari since then, however, the Roberts Court has denied certiorari and has shown no interest in pursuing the late Chief Justice's proposal.

Famous quotes containing the words subsequent and/or history:

    And he smiled a kind of sickly smile, and curled up on the floor,
    And the subsequent proceedings interested him no more.
    Francis Bret Harte (1836–1902)

    It may be well to remember that the highest level of moral aspiration recorded in history was reached by a few ancient Jews—Micah, Isaiah, and the rest—who took no count whatever of what might not happen to them after death. It is not obvious to me why the same point should not by and by be reached by the Gentiles.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)
