Supreme Court Grants PLF Admission, Allows Joint Brief in Map Act Case

Via Civitas Review:

The North Carolina Supreme Court today granted the Civitas Institute Center for Law and Freedom (CLF)’s motion for the pro hac vice admission of the Pacific Legal Foundation’s Mark Miller and a CLF/PLF joint motion to file an amicus brief in Kirby v. DOT, more widely known as the “Map Act” case. The brief was submitted to the Court along with the motion for leave to file.

The motions were both uncontested and within the discretion of the Court to allow or reject. The Court will now be able to consider the arguments made in the joint PLF/CLF amicus brief when it renders a final decision next year. Oral arguments have been scheduled for Tuesday, February 16, 2016.

At issue in the case is whether the state’s use of the Map Act constitutes a “taking” which requires just compensation to affected landowners.
