Constitutional – Inverse Condemnation Claim – Police Power – Hostage Situation – Damage to Building (access required)

Carolina Convenience Stores, Inc. v. City of Spartanburg Even though plaintiff’s store was damaged while the defendant-city’s police rescued a hostage from her kidnapper, this was an exercise of the city’s police power and not its power of eminent domain. Therefore, plaintiff failed to make out an inverse condemnation claim against the city. We affirm summary judgment for the city.
