Abstract

"From the Ground Up" piece on a new U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing the city of New London, Conn., to take homes and commercial properties through eminent domain for general economic development. The decision may have implications for public/private partnerships created to redevelop distressed areas. In Maine, the use of eminent domain for economic development is only allowed to eliminate blighted areas, and a statute requires owner consent for economic development-related takings in blighted areas.
