Justices Rule Cities Can Take Property for Private Development

WASHINGTON, June 23 - The Supreme Court ruled today, in one of its most closely watched property rights cases in years, that fostering economic development is an appropriate use of the government's power of eminent domain.

The 5-to-4 decision cleared the way for the city of New London, Conn., to proceed with a large-scale plan to replace a faded residential neighborhood with office space for research and development., a conference hotel, new residences and a pedestrian "riverwalk" along the Thames River.

So much for the 5th Amendment, they ripped it out of the Constitution in one ruling. It was split just as I figured it would be ... 5 (LIBERALS) - 4 (Conservatives) ... still think judicial nominees are not important ?

Maybe I'll form a "private development corp" and have the city seize the land of 5 liberal judges to construct something more taxable.

Feudal system comes to mind ... maybe if I offer to pay the city 2 times the tax dollars they'll kick them out of their mansions and give them to me.
