What’s mine is…well…mine…maybe

According to Fox News (don’t see an article about it on the website yet); Michigan is apparantly safe from the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding Eminent Domain because the State Supreme Court previously ruled that ED could only be used for truly “public” project like parks and roads.

But since the SCOTUSA has ruled otherwise, and because it trumps all other courts, wouldn’t Michigan’s previous ruling be nullified?

I knew there was a reason I didn’t want to be a lawyer….besides the inability to be confrontational to people I don’t know.

  1. Not quite… The SC ruling left the door open for states to make their own judgements about the domain issue. So, the Michigan court’s ruling is the law of the land in Michigan.

  2. Sweet! Thanks for the info!

    Now if only the other states would get around to doing this we’d be safe from the tyranny of ‘more tax revenue’.
