The article reports that according to District of Columbia Mayor Anthony Williams, he is worried that planned development projects in the district--with the exception of the planned bond-financed baseball stadium--could be jeopardized if the Supreme Court revises eminent domain criteria to make it more difficult for local governments to take private land for planned privately-owned redevelopments. Williams attended the oral arguments at the Supreme Court on Tuesday. On that day he said if the high court were to make condemning property for redevelopment tougher, local redevelopment would become more difficult and more expensive.
