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)

He now argues that the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment does not constrain the purposes for which the government can condemn property, at all.

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.
