On the Supreme's "Eminent Domain' ruling: Through the Volokh Conspiracy blog, here is an example of related political ramifications and corruption.

"Segal said he met with Cryan, who is head of the township's Democratic Party, and other local officials "scores of times" over the past five years to discuss the project. He claims the talks turned adversarial after he rejected proposals to work with various developers they proposed.
On May 24, the five-member township committee voted unanimously to authorize the municipality to seize Segal's land through eminent domain and name its own developer."

Using eminent domain to seize land to be used for exactly the same purpose because politicians want a personaly, 'generous' developer to be contracted? 'Todd,' of the Volokh Conspiracy ended his post on this issue with: "Move over Tony Soprano."
