Today the U.S. Supreme Court takes up a case about...raisins.

Horne v. USDA pits California raisin farmers against the Department of Agriculture. The decision could have widespread implications for property rights and government compensation.

The case already has libertarians, business leaders and environmentalists taking sides.

For more on this case we're joined by Karl Manheim, professor of Constitutional Law at Loyola Law School.
