ABSTRACT
The article discusses the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. The case involved an attempt to redevelop the Fort Trumbull neighborhood in New London, Connecticut. The pharmaceutical company Pfizer planned to open a facility near the neighborhood with approval by state officials. Private property owners filed suit when the New London Development Corporation (NLDC) was authorized to take their land by eminent domain, claiming the intended land usage by Pfizer violated public use laws. The Supreme Court ruled that the planning effort by New London officials indicated public purposes for the takings.
