Penn Central Transportation Co. v. City of New York (1978) Penn Central Transportation Co. v. City of New York
*Agins v. City of Tiburon (1980) Used an alternative takings test to the Penn Central test. U.S. Supreme Court rules that the open space zoning ordinance of the city of Tiburon, California, does not result in a taking of property without payment of just compensation.

Moratoria on development are not per se takings under the Fifth Amendment, but should be analyzed under the multi-factor Penn Central test.
