Just compensation is a pretty basic part of the Constitution. Which is why this week’s panel is a little confused how the State of Minnesota thought it could just take a bunch of insulin without paying for it.

Then IJ’s Anna Goodman tells another Eighth Circuit tale of a speedy trial that was not so speedy. But it turns out that’s ok. Even when it’s the government’s fault.
