Here's your chance -- for a very reasonable tuition fee -- to get updated on what's happened in the ten years since the U.S. Supreme Court's controversial eminent domain decision in Kelo v. City of New London, 545 U.S. 469 (2005).
On July 23, 2015, the Counselors of Real Estate and the Owners' Counsel of America are jointly sponsoring a webinar, "Kelo v. New London: The Grasping Hand and Its Legacy."
I'll be introducing and moderating a distinguished panel of speakers:
As the brochure notes, "This panel of eminent domain experts will discuss the effect of this landmark decision – one that that changed how citizens and courts viewed these types of cases. How does this affect your clients and developments?"
- Professor Ilya Somin, author of the recently-published book on Kelo.
- Anthony DellaPelle (McKirdy & Riskin) and Jack Sperber (Faegre Baker Daniels), my OCA colleagues from New Jersey and Colorado, respectively.
We're going to cover a lot of ground, including the legislative and judicial responses to Kelo, practical and doctrinal tips for how to navigate the current public use landscape, and maybe a few predictions for the future.
Hope you can join us.
