APA Supports Kelo Decision

A article in APA's Planning & Environmental Law describes the arguments in APA's Amicus Curiae and the decision written by Justice Stevens.

The U.S. Supreme Court's 5-4 decision in the Kelo v. City of New London case has generated a spirited and varied public response. A commentary in the July issue of Planning & Environmental Law succinctly describes the facts, the arguments in APA's Amicus Curiae Committee's successful brief, and the decision written by Justice Stevens.

"Contrary to the opinion of many of Kelo's supporters, the decision might be viewed as a "win" for all sides because the debate is not over. It now moves into the halls of Congress and the state legislatures. Our democratically elected officials will have a voice in shaping the next generation of eminent domain codes."
