Activists Want Justice Souter's Home for Commercial Development
The Associated Press is reporting that a group of activists are trying to seize Justice David Souter's home in Weare, N.H. for the construction of an inn called "Lost Liberty Hotel." The activists picked this location because Justice Souter sided with the Court in Kelo v. New London, the very controversal 2005 Supreme Court ruling which held that local governments can use eminent domain powers to acquire property in support of their redevelopment efforts.
The group has submitted enough petition signatures -- only 25 were needed -- to bring the matter before voters in March. Stay tuned.
