To the Supreme Court we go!!!

Filed under:Uncategorized — posted by admin on October 16, 2012 @ 2:03 pm


Just got word that the Minnesota Supreme Court has granted the petition of attorneys for the “Buy the Farm” case for review by the court.  Like WOW!

Order – October 16, 2012

AND the Minnesota Supreme Court has also granted the Motions of NoCapX2020, United Citizens Action Network and St. Paul’s Lutheran School and Church and Cannon Falls Landowners, and the Minnesota Eminent Domain Institute (filed by Rod Krass) to file briefs as amici curiae.

There’s a blurb reminding us of the purpose of amici briefs and encouraging us to coordinate to avoid redundant briefing:

An amicus curiae brief that brings to the attention of the Court relevant matter not already brought to its attention by the parties may be of considerable help to the Court.  An amicus curiae brief that does not serve this purpose burdens the Court, and its filing is not favored.

The door is open…

  1. Carol, This has to do with the minimum Compensation right?
    They are not trying to get 216E.12 statute thrown out, are they? I am trying to get the Quick take statute to be found unconstitutional because Article 1 sec 10. If they get 216E thrown out then I do not have much of an argument.
