Eminent Domain

The ACLU and the Pacific Legal Foundation are asking a Court to Stop Government Abuse of Eminent Domain. They'd like the court to overturn Poletown Neighborhood Council v. City of Detroit, which allowed the city to condemn a low-income neighborhood in order to sell the land cheaply to General Motors.

The folks at Reason's blog are understandably upset about this kind of expropriation, and the abuses of it that have come about over the last 20 years.
