Ind. Decisions - Indiana Supreme Court rules on taking claim against Indianapolis International Airport

In Biddle v. BAA Indianapolis, a 15-page, 5-0 opinion, Chief Justice Shepard writes:

Homeowners near Indianapolis International Airport contend that noise from airplanes passing over or near their property amounts to a taking within the meaning of the Fifth Amendment. The homeowners also say the Airport should be compelled to offer them financial settlements similar to those offered to earlier litigants. The trial court granted summary judgment for the Airport, and we affirm.
