Eminent Domain: Extortion is now legal, so say

Eminent Domain: Extortion is now legal, so say

Extortion is now legal, so say’s the 2nd Circuit Federal Court.

EMINENT DOMAIN QUESTIONS PRESENTED TO THE US SUPREME COURT

In Kelo v. City of New London, this Court held that economic development within an integrated development plan was a “public use” under the meaning of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Does Kelo therefore completely preclude all claims of private purpose takings within an integrated development plan area, including a claim that eminent domain was used for financial extortion and the purely private financial goals of a single party?

What limits if any do the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution place on demands for cash in exchange for refraining from the use of eminent domain?

Petition for certiorari
