Village of Euclid v. Ambler Realty Co.
Citation:272 U.S. 365 (1926)
CaseCast™ – "What you need to know"
The village of Euclid council adopted an ordinance that divided the entire area of the village into six classes of use districts. Ambler Realty Co. owned tracts of land that came under three classes of use districts that restricted the use of those lands to specific buildings. Ambler Realty Co. sued the village of Euclid under the theory that the ordinance violated section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment since the ordinance deprived the defendant of liberty and property without due process of law and it denied it the equal protection of the law. Ambler Realty Co. sued for an injunction restraining the enforcement of the ordinance.
