Larry Berger on "The Public Use Requirement in Emminent Domain"

Amongst the blizzard of recent scholarship on Kelo, I was reminded today of a classic article on public use. I am home reading a seminar paper on Kelo, and the student-author cited a classic on the subject authored by my recently-retired colleague, Professor Larry Berger.

If you don't mind blowing some dust off an old bound volume in the library stacks, consider re-reading Lawrence Berger, The Public Use Requirement in Emminent Domain, 57 Or. L.Rev. 203 (1978). Larry is a great friend and mentor of mine, and as many of you know, his property scholarship has always been first rate.
