For all the effort involved in the Kelo decision (for those that don’t know, this was the theft of a private residence using Eminent Domain, but the property ended up in the hands of a corporation), the Pfizer corporation abandoned the plan to build it’s new R&D plant, leaving New London, Conn holding the bag. And after all that the city did for the corporation, in the hope that they would stay and bring new jobs with them.

And, Of course, Susan Kelo is forever without her family’s home.

Yeah, she got paid for it under Eminent Domain, but she lost the house her parents left to her, and the site is now just a field, with all the houses torn down.

For nothing. No new R&D plant, no development. Nothing.
