Reconstructing the Takings Doctrine by Redefining Property and Sovereignty
University of Utah - S.J. Quinney College of Law

Fordham Urban Law Journal, Vol. 16, No. 157, 1988
Much of the confusion in takings jurisprudence arises from the failure of the courts to develop a coherent federal constitutional property theory that adequately addresses the expectations of the private property owner. This article proposes replacing the traditional two-step takings analysis of first determining what constitutes a protectable property interest and then determining when governmental regulation affects that interest to an extent requiring compensation, with a one-step analysis that focuses on the regulatory impact on the functions that property serves.
