California First English Evangelical Lutheran Church of Glendale v. County of Los Angeles - Decision

court effect taking compensation

The Court found in favor of the appellant. The county of Los Angeles had, in effect, engaged in a regulatory taking because the appellant was denied use and economic viability of its property. Thus, the effect of the county ordinance was held excessive and subject to the Just Compensation Clause of the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The Court ordered just compensation must be paid, even for "the time before determination that the regulation effected a taking." The U.S Supreme Court reversed the decision of the lower court and remanded the case further proceedings.
