TOPIC DESCRIPTION (4 PARTS):
“1. Discuss the rights of citizens in Florida under the Florida Constitution when their property is taken by a governmental entity, and explain why and how the property owner is entitled to be made whole. In doing so, distinguish when property is taken by police power, and when it is taken by eminent domain.
2. Explain the procedure of eminent domain condemnation proceedings, specifically citing Chapter 73 of the Florida Statutes.
3. Further, compare the rights of Florida citizens having their property taken when their property is condemned by eminent domain with rights of citizens of other jurisdictions, specifically by the federal government, and the State of Connecticut. In what ways do Florida citizens have more rights?
4. Finally, discuss the constitutionality of the State of Florida taking property for privately operated toll roads. Cite the case law below and any other pertinent law or statutes.
