[John Doe] v. United States

Memorandum and Order dismissing takings claims


Takings cases arising under the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution brought by citizens of other countries occur with some frequency. To establish standing to bring a takings case, a nonresident alien must show that he or she has come within the territory of the United States and developed substantial connections to the U.S. In this case, an Iraqi citizen brought a takings case against the United States for loss of his home and property associated with military use and then destruction of his home. His case was dismissed for lack of standing.
