Last week, a New Jersey intermediate appellate court issued an opinion in Vineland Const. Co., Inc. v. Township of Pennsauken upholding a Kelo-style taking for private development. The town had selected a private entity to redevelop an area of waterfront that included plaintiff's land. Plaintiff wanted the option of redeveloping the property on its own. The taking was upheld under Kelo and New Jersey equivalents.
