I am reblogging this post as I will be participating in a virtual Federalist Society panel on the theme of “COVID-19 and Property Rights” this afternoon. Specifically, I will be debating my colleague and friend Ilya Somin on whether Government Actions in Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic Create Compensable Takings. (I will argue yes; Somin, no.) The panel is today, May 15, at 2:30 PM (Eastern). It is a teleconference, not a Zoom, so you can listen in by calling in at 888-752-3232. Prof. Somin and I have reserved most of the time to take questions from the audience! (Lastly, I apologize in advance if I do a terrible job at this panel. I am in the process of preparing for the debate, but the law is not on my side!)
On Friday, May 15, at 2:30 PM Eastern (11:30 AM Pacific), Professor Ilya Somin and yours truly will be debating the following question: “Do Government Actions in Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic Create Compensable Takings?” This virtual panel is open to the public–just pick up a phone and dial 888-752-3232 to listen in. (Sorry, we won’t be using Zoom, but Ilya and I have agreed to field questions from the audience.) Via the Federalist Society, more details are available here.
