Oral argument of the week: Shinnecock Indian Nation v. U.S.

I find the concept of “judicial takings” and patent law to be pretty interesting.  I posted about this previously [here].  The Federal Circuit recently decided Shinnecock Indian Nation v. U.S. which is tangentially related to judicial takings, although not in the realm of patent law. During the oral argument, the Supreme Court’s plurality opinion from Stop the Beach Renourishment v. Florida Department of Environmental Protection, 560 U.S. ___ (2010) is discussed — although that opinion is ultimately not mentioned in the Shinnecock decision.

You can listen to the oral argument [here].

The opinion is available [here].
