What Did The Supreme Court Justices Decide In Kelo V City Of New London? (RESOLVED)

The Supreme Court needs to address this radical departure from the language of the Constitution 🔥 Its last case involving private development was 50 years ago, and it allowed the clearance of an area so blighted that most buildings lacked plumbing 😁 For the last 50 years, without further guidance, it’s been up to states to set their own rules 🔥 The had states come to differing conclusions, not surprising. Some states, like Connecticut, allow condemnations for “economic development.” Other states, like Washington, South Carolina Maine does not. Constitution should apply to all Americans. The guidance of the U.S. Supreme Court is urgently needed in order to stop continued and increasing abuse of eminent domain. [1]

Increases tax It is a public purpose if it generates city revenue and revives an urban area that has been depressed or blighted.

Janna Cagle at cga.ct.gov, explains the process by which the property owners challenged the takings before state courts. They claimed that NLDC had violated Connecticut’s and the United States Constitutions prohibiting the taking of property for public purposes without compensation. Following a 7-day bench trial the Superior Court issued a ruling on some takings. It overturned other takings. This led to both sides appealing to the Connecticut Supreme Court. All takings were upheld by the Superior Court on the basis that they were necessary for the achievement of the stated purpose. Plan’s economic revitalization goals. Although the plan was validly public, the dissenting justices ruled that it was unconstitutional as the had city done not show how it would accomplish those goals. [3]

The flickering concern in her eyes was evident even though she smiled. What would it take to keep her in this house she’s has spendingnding seven years renovating? The city was interested in buy the land her home was on, and then tear it and over 100 other houses down in order to allow private developers to revitalize the area—there were plans for a resort hotel, a conference centre, and new condominiums.
