Supreme Court Karma

I can only avoid discussing the Kelo decision for so long. In my opinion (and apparently I am not the only one) it is probably the worst decision since Dred Scott. So it made this story rather amusing. I am not sure if anything will become of it, but we can always dream.

Weare, New Hampshire (PRWEB) Could a hotel be built on the land owned by Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter? A new ruling by the Supreme Court which was supported by Justice Souter himself itself might allow it. A private developer is seeking to use this very law to build a hotel on Souter's land.

Justice Souter's vote in the "Kelo vs. City of New London" decision allows city governments to take land from one private owner and give it to another if the government will generate greater tax revenue or other economic benefits when the land is developed by the new owner.
