STATEMENT OF QUESTION INVOLVED

Michigan has a long history of construing the state constitution’s “just compensation” clause liberally to provide full compensation to a property owner for a diminution in value of the property remaining to him or her after a partial taking of his or her real property. Does this constitutional guarantee render MCL 213.70(2) unconstitutional?

Amicus curiae’s answer: Yes

Plaintiffs’ answer: No

Defendant’s answer: Yes
