When the Right to Compensation for “Regulatory Takings” Goes to the Extreme: The Case of Israel

Abstract

This Article discusses the statutory law, its relationship to constitutional law, and the ways the courts have interpreted key elements of legislation. It also offers some hypotheses about factors that may be driving the steep increase in the number of claims and the impact this has had. Occasionally, the author’s views will be incorporated regarding suggestions for partial reform of what has become a runaway compensation scheme.
