    Essay On Eminent Domain

    • 1276 Words
    • 6 Pages

    accommodate the military, and obtain various goods, sometimes even without giving just compensation to the owner. The relevance of eminent domain today is not applicable because the U.S has abused the power to force people off their private property for uses that they think will benefit the common people for the ‘public good’.

Parker case in 1954 where it planned to remove blighted homes in the Washington D.C area with the District of Colombia Redevelopment Act of 1945. The government planned to implement eminent domain to every home in the home including a department store operated and owned by a person named Berman who claimed that his store was not being redeveloped for ’public use’ as it was going to be taken by a private agency for their private, commercial use by the government.

On top of that, any recordings on V-Discs for military purposes could not used for commercial purposes or sold and were destroyed after the war. "Bop did not have a chance to emerge gradually for public listening as the other styles had" Tanner.

    "Ow." Clark Kent grunted as he tried to lift a fence rail. "Hey, Chloe, what brings you all the way out here?" Chloe Sullivan leaned against the fence and studied him carefully.
