Will Kelo V. New London Become Another Roe-vs-Wade?
Americans used to believe that their constitution protected private property. The Fifth Amendment allows the state to seize it only for public use, and so long as just compensation is paid. Public use has traditionally been taken to mean something like a public highway. According to The Economist, the recent Kelo -vs- New London Supreme Court decision changes that relationship, and more and more private citizens are becoming concerned.
