The Supreme Court on Monday refused — as it was expected to do — to reconsider its controversial ruling expanding the power of local governments to seize private property for economic development. The action came as the Justices issued several routine orders while the Court remains in its summer recess. (The case was Kelo v. City of New London, 04-108; the Court divided 5-4 in that decision.).
From the ScotusBlog. Oh well – it is up to the States and local legislators/legislatures and most importantly, the public to voice their and its opinion that this was a terrible, freedom-robbing ruling.
