Pacific Legal Foundation present Oral Argument at the Supreme Court for Major Property Rights Case
Pacific Legal Foundation presented its oral argument in their eleventh case before the Supreme Court of the United States — Murr v. State of Wisconsin and St. Croix County. It is a major property rights challenge on behalf of the Murr family of Hudson, Wisconsin.
Donna Murr, her five siblings, and other members of the Murr family were at the court today to defend their basic liberties, but by extension, the rights of all property owners in our nation. At stake is whether two separate parcels can be combined by local and state officials in a scheme to avoid paying compensation to the Murr family as required by the Fifth Amendment.
The argument went exceptionally well. You can watch this post-argument news conference to hear directly from PLF General Counsel John Groen, who argued the case, and their client, Donna Murr.
Listen to this special edition of our Courting Liberty podcast with our analysis of the argument.
This is a proud day in America when freedom-loving citizens like the Murrs can get their day in court — the nation’s highest court — to vindicate their property rights.
