Pacific Legal Foundation launches eminent domain blog

The Pacific Legal Foundation, America’s oldest public interest legal foundation dedicated to defending private property rights, has launched an pnline information clearing house for news and opinion regarding the abuse of eminent domain.

In the year since the Supreme Court’s decision in Kelo v. New London, declaring that government may seize homes and businesses under eminent domain then transfer the property to private developers, Americans have begun joining grassroots crusades to demand protection for their property. New laws in over a dozen states seek to restrict the use of eminent domain, and lawsuits in Texas, Ohio, Oklahoma, Florida, and other states have demanded that judges recognize the constitutional restrictions on this power.

The Pacific Legal Foundation will maintain an ongoing records of abuse, opinions, information about events, and other useful information at the new website. Check it out at:
