Federal Circuit Hears Oral Argument in Flood Easement Case


The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit recently heard oral argument in Stueve Brothers Farms, LLC v. United States. In Stueve Brothers, the owners of farmland within the Prado Dam Flood Control Basin in California sued the Government alleging that a revised flood survey map took a flowage easement over their property. The revised flood survey map was based on the Corps’ decision to increase the dam’s capacity, which would increase the amount of land that would be flooded if the dam spilled. Argument was heard by Judges Prost, Bryson, and Reyna.
