An intermediate appellate court in New York has rejected the use of eminent domain for a project associated with Columbia University. The New York Times has a story on the case, and Ilya Somin comments at the VC. There seems to be some conflict with the NY Court of Appeals' recent decision in the Atlantic Yards case. Particularly because the intermediate appellate court's decision was 3-2, this case is quite likely to go up to the Court of Appeals.
