Puntenney v. Iowa Utilities Board

Petition for certiorari denied on February 24, 2020
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-447 Iowa N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2019

Issues: (1) Whether a state’s exercise of eminent domain satisfies the “public use” requirement of the Fifth Amendment’s takings clause if the only benefits experienced within that state are incidental; and (2) whether a state can satisfy the “public use” requirement of the Fifth Amendment’s takings clause merely by labeling the taking with a traditional category of public use, without engaging in the “public purpose” analysis outlined by Kelo v. City of New London.
