Eminent domain attorney Jay Small of Mateer Harbert in Orlando joins the podcast to discuss the Supreme Court case Alabama Association of Realtors vs. Department of Health and Human Services. We discuss whether this case opened the door to challenging the moratorium as a compensable taking, and Jay brings a prescient analysis of the opinion. We also discuss the Court’s citation of Loretto, the shift of economic risk to landlords, as well as what Jay notes is a curious omission of Yee v. City of Escondido.
