The Supreme Court has ruled that some heavy duty Executive Branch regulations are infringing upon private land owners.

A case where the government was attempting to restrict some private land use because the Army Corps of Engineers claimed the private land had federally protected wetlands.

The Clean Water Act goes back decades, but apparently the regulations can be created and changed on whims and jealousies.

In their opinions, some Justices opened the door for more landowner lawsuits.


Supreme Court Rules 8-0 for Landowners Fighting Clean Water Act Regulations


In an important victory for property rights nationwide, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-0 on Monday that landowners have the right to seek judicial review of federal determinations which say that their properties contain “waters of the United States” subject to stringent regulations under the Clean Water Act.

The case of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers v. Hawkes Co., Inc. centered on a peat-mining business that has been prevented from using some of its property because the Army Corps of Engineers determined that the land in question contained federally protected wetlands. The Hawkes Co. disagreed with that determination and set out to challenge it in federal court. But the federal government maintained that judicial review was not an option for landowners at this stage under the Clean Water Act.

The liberals on the court know their end is on the horizon January 20, 2017. The plan to steal America by throwing out the Constitution and the rule of law is over. The most evil plan in the history of the world is about to be over.

Told you Obama's new definition of the Water Act would do this... I am reading this and it seems to me that this has to be a nightmare... How the hell did the American people get so blinded to allow things like this?

Obama, the socialist that he is alongside his administration staff is only furthering the elite's goal of implementing socialism in the United States.

Only a socialist, fascist government like Obama's would try to use laws such as the Clean Water Act to impose their power over property rights...

By means of trickery, Fine print language that is unconstitutional.
That, and everyone wants the freebies.

This is great.

I'd love to see people challenge local municipalities in some Colorado (and maybe other states') towns where they say that residents can't collect rain water than falls on their property.

Some of this crap is so ridiculous that one must wonder how it ever gets approved/passed into law in the first place without massive uproar. Damn apathetic citizens...

This SCOTUS ruling could be used I believe.

Hopefully it does get used. I'm really tired of the heavy hand of government, both large and small, stomping on our rights to be secure in our property.
