Petition of the day

The petition of the day is:


Issues: (1) Whether the Louisiana Supreme Court erred when it held that the Fifth Amendment’s “public use” requirement is a question of fact to be resolved in the trial court, subject only to manifest error review on appeal; and (2) whether the Fifth and 14th Amendments prohibit the government from taking a fully-functioning private facility with the intent to lease it to another private entity to operate when the revenues earned from those operations are to be shared by both the local government entity and its favored private actor.
