1. SUPREME COURT:

Justices to take up Fla. property rights dispute

The Supreme Court decided today to take up a Florida landowner's claim that he is owed compensation by a land-use agency after it declined to issue permits for a wetlands area he wanted to develop because he wouldn't agree to certain conditions. The case, Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District, hinges on a question of "inverse condemnation" -- a situation that arises when property owners sue governments for compensation under the takings clause of the Fifth Amendment.
