Love Terminal Partners v. United States

Love Terminal Wins Partial Summary Judgment


In 2006, Congress passed legislation requiring the City of Dallas, Texas to demolish the gates at the Legend Terminal at Love Field, to accomodate a deal struck between Southwest Airllines and American Airlines and the city. The owners of Legend, Love Terminal Partners, filed a takings lawsuit in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, alleging that the legislation requiring that its terminal be destroyed resulted in a physical taking of its property. The trial court agreed, holding that the statute "effected a per se, physical taking of [LTP's] property for which the government is liable to pay just compensation . . . ."
