Justice Stevens Admits Error in the Kelo Case—but Also Doubles Down on the Bottom Line


The Kelo decision deeply undermined property rights in this country.

(From Reason)

This rationale (previously advanced by a few legal scholars) is actually much more dubious than the broad definition of “public use” Stevens advocated in the Kelo decision.
