Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad Co. v. City of Chicago, 166 U.S. 226 (1897), incorporated the takings clause of the 5th amendment into the due process clause of the 14th amendment by requiring states to provide just compensation for seizing private property. This was the first supreme court case that incorporated an amendment of the Bill of Rights. Prior to this case, the Bill of Rights was considered to only apply to the Federal government. — Excerpted from Chicago, B. & Q. R. Co. v. Chicago on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
