The Inverse Condemnation Blog has an in-depth look at the Wheat Ridge case that I mentioned here. "Whoa, eminent domain is a tool to 'redistribute' private property 'in any manner that future circumstances and the public welfare demand?' I thought eminent domain was supposed to be used to take property when it is needed 'for public use.' Silly me." Well, at least the justices get credit for their candor.
