Amicus Brief

Brott v. United States of America, 6th Circuit Court of Appeals

Amicus curiae brief in support of plaintiffs

The Seventh Amendment preserves the right to a jury trial as it existed in England and the American colonies prior to 1791. Juries usually assessed compensation in pre-independence takings cases in England and the colonies. Does Kevin Brott have a constitutional right to a jury in his inverse condemnation claim against the federal government?
