Smolker Bartlett obtains favorable ruling on inverse condemnation claim against the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. On October 16, 2013, a state court ruled that the Firm's client owned land that the State took through regulatory actions in violation of the Florida Constitution's Just Compensation clause. The State must now compensate the Firm's client for this unlawful taking without compensation. Ethan Loeb, David Smolker, and Jon Tasso represented the Firm’s client.
