- Ninth Circuit Affirms Validity of Fifth Amendment Claim In Guam - Takings Case

Until 2002, Jan's Helicopters operated a helicopter transport business out of the island of Guam, a territory of the United States in the northern Pacific Ocean. On July 31, 2002, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) sent an e-mail to the authorities at Guam International Airport (GIA) stating that Jan's Helicopters did not have Department of Transportation (DOT) authorization to operate from Guam. As a consequence of the FAA e-mail, GIA grounded Jan's Helicopters' aircraft. Jan's Helicopters eventually filed suit against the FAA arguing due process and Fifth Amendment violations. The suit was dismissed in U.S. district court, appealed to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and finally transferred to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
