Nolon on the Myths of Kelo

John R. Nolon (Pace Law School) has posted Property Rights and Eminent Domain: The Mighty Myths of the Kelo Case on the internet.  I disagree with Nolon on some fine points on the Supreme Court's precedent in this area, but I agree with his overall position.  I also think that his Myth #5 ignores the significant behind-the-scenes role played by Pfizer in pushing for the New London redevelopment plan.  In any event, this short essay is definitely worth a read for anyone interested in Kelo and the Public Use issue.
