inverse condemnation

A lawsuit brought against a government agency because of some action claimed to have damaged property to such a degree as to amount to a condemnation,even though there was no official exercise of the right of eminent domain and no compensation offered or paid to the property owner.This situation often comes up when governments increase the level or degree of regulation of property in such a manner as to make it economically incapable of development and thus worthless to the owner.
