In this case, the owner of real property filed a cause of action for inverse condemnation against a quasi-governmental entity.  However, the Court determined that the entity had already acquired a prescriptive flood easement over the property due to the inaction of the previous owner.  Further, the Court found that a prescriptive easement is a granting, and is neither an actual taking nor a regulatory taking, and compensation is not required.  Therefore, the Court dismissed the cause of action.
