The Supreme Court Friday took a handful of new cases. Mostly intellectul property cases that don't interest me, but also one each on the 4th Amendment and the Takings clause of the 5th Amendment.

Manuel v. Joliet, Ill.: Whether an individual who claims to have been a victim of police fabrication of evidence has a right to sue for discriminatory prosecution under the Fourth Amendment — an issue left open previously by the Court.

Murr v. Wisconsin: Whether, when a property owner claims that a government regulation amounts to “taking” of the property, two parcels that are distinct but next to each other be treated as one for this analysis.
