McNamara v. Rittman, City of

ELR Citation: 37 ELR 20016
Nos. No. 02-3965, (6th Cir., 01/08/2007)

The court upheld a lower court decision dismissing residents' takings claim against a city for the dewatering of their water wells in the 1990s. Their takings claim based on past violations was barred by the statute of limitations because it was delinquently filed in federal court. Meanwhile, their takings claim for continuing violations was not properly raised below and, hence, is not ripe for review.
