Limits of Urban Redevelopment? Kelo, Walser, and Condemnation in Minnesota
The U. S. Supreme Court decision in Kelo v. New London reaffirms the deferential standard of review of legislative takings. Minnesota courts nevertheless are challenged to balance the benefits of redevelopment with the private property rights of landowners.
By Jeffrey W. Post and Melissa A. Baer

By Nick Dranias
