Summary
Main traces the history of eminent domain law in American history to the Supreme Court case of Kelo v. New London, which sanctioned the transfer of property from one private party to another for the sake of "economic development" under the "public use" clause of the Constitution. She anchors her legal narrative within the story of how weakened property rights and eminent domain have impacted a small family-owned shrimp processing plant threatened with eminent domain seizure in Freeport, Texas, in a case very similar to Kelo
