Back in 2005, I wrote about a controversial decision by the U. S. Supreme Court about the limits on government power to take private property for public use.
The case was controversial because it gave the government very expansive power to take property from one private party and sell it to another for purposes of economic development, with economic development being defined very broadly (Loosely, some would say).
Ten years after that case was decided, the property that was taken is still vacant. This post at the Volokh Conspiracy blog has photos of the empty ground where the home of Suzette Kelo, the plaintiff in that U. S. Supreme Court case, once stood, and a shelter for the feral cats that now occupy the site.
