Paul Farmer, Kelo Attorney Square Off Over Property Rights
The Supreme Court's decision in Kelo v. the City of New London has been hotly debated since it was released in June. Media have raised the questions: Is the ruling an expansion of the government's eminent domain powers? Will the decision lead to more takings in other cities, or are property rights advocates overstating the potential fallout? How are state and federal lawmakers reacting to the decision?
American Planning Association Executive Director Paul Farmer and Scott Bullock, a senior attorney with the Institute for Justice who argued the case before the high court, went head to head over Kelo for the web-based discussion program, On Point, which airs daily on E&ETV.
