KELO V. CITY OF NEW LONDON: WHAT IF THE CITY WANTED YOUR HOUSE?

In Kelo v. New London,  J. Craig Williams wants to know, "How far does the government's power reach?"

"... Usually redevelopment is fairly easy, within some boundaries. Property is blighted, contaminated, run-down or some other problem exists. The citizens want the place cleaned up and returned to productive use. What about the case here, where the homes in the Fort Trumbull area are fine? ... New London will make more tax revenue from the development. It will also provide more shopping and potentially a public aquarium.

"Who's right?  How would you want the Supreme Court to rule?"

Williams is open to comments here.
