Wisconsin GrandSons of Liberty will present the 9th of their Dirty Dozen Case Studies: Kelo v. City of New London (2005)
This US Supreme Court case considered whether the Constitution permitted a government to use the power of eminent domain to seize a private citizen’s home and give the property to another private citizen or corporation. Kelo opened the floodgates for eminent domain abuse before 43 states acted to restrict the abuse of power. Today, there are still problems in some states with eminent domain abuse. In Wisconsin, the state statutes were revised but the definition of “blight” is so loose that the revisions mean nothing.
The case study includes looking at the impact on Wisconsin post-Kelo.
The Dirty Dozen Series looks at the 12 worst US Supreme Court decisions since 1933.
After the case study, we will discuss the group’s 2015-16 Legislative Agenda.

Presented by Loren Spivack, of North Carolina
is boring to many people because they think it's about numbers that are
manipulated and made to say what the presenter wants them to say. How
would you like to hear economics and dealing with today's real problems
in a humorous way that makes you laugh as you discover how simple
economics can be? If you think that is not possible, then you have
never heard Loren Spivack speak. One of Loren's seminar attendees from Charlotte, NC, said "Wow! I always thought economics was like voodoo but Loren made it clear, simple and fun!"
