Eminent Domain?

Somehow I have trouble calling a Supreme Court that makes a decision like this, conservative. Of course what it means to be a conservative has changed a whole lot recently hasn't it? I can't believe they've ruled against private property rights and in favor of eminent domain even when the are serving private economic interests. This means you better be friendly to your local economic development bureaucrat or they just might find someone to build on the site of your home. Nice. The case I'm referring to is Kelo v. New London, (04-108), and the should be more today, for now there is a recap here.

Keywords: Supreme Court, Eminent Domain
