Abstract: Many local governments, developers and other in the real estate community cheered when the U.S. Supreme Court announced its decision in the Kelo v. City of New London case. But the backlash that followed has been passionate and widespread. Though the government side of the issue may have won the battle, it’s clearly losing the war. Numerous state legislations have passed or are considering measures that restrict the use of eminent domain.
