Supreme Court Justice Could Lose Home

Logan Darrow Clements, an activist associated with the group Americans for Tax Reform, has proposed building at hotel on Justice David H. Souter's property to retaliate against the Kelo vs. New London ruling.

"Souter, who owns a home in the south-central New Hampshire town, voted with the majority last week in the case of Kilo vs. City of New London. The court found that the Connecticut city could use the power of eminent domain to seize private property to make way for an urban redevelopment project that would provide broad economic benefits to the community.

The proposal to seize Souter's modest home, though it may be far-fetched, has gained support from conservatives across the country."
