Eminent Domain Abuse in Missouri
by Timothy Sandefur
Timothy Lee of the Show-Me Institute has issued a new report on the abuse of eminent domain in Missouri, the state that probably has the worst laws on eminent domain in the country. (I consulted on an early draft of the report.) He has some comments about the report here.
The case of Homer Tourkakis, which he discusses at length in the report, is currently pending before the Missouri Supreme Court. I and James Burling of the Pacific Legal Foundation are representing him. Here is a litigation backgrounder on the case.
