Fair Market Value

Some fogged up fellow thinks eminent domain seizures involve the payment of "fair market value" to the person whose property was taken. What rubbish. There is no meaning whatsoever to "fair market value" except what someone will willingly exchange, and eminent domain is only used when the owner is not willing to sell at the state's price, i.e., the seizee never gets fair market value.

    It looks like in Chiacgo they don't even need eminent domain to screw over un-"connected" business owners:

    How very true, Mr. Callahan! You wouldn't happen to know any of those that sanctified state seizures from the CT St Supreme Court in years past, would ya?

  5. I suspected that Anonymous was refering to the fact that my uncle was Chief Justice of the CT Supreme Court. But, believe it or not, I never paid much attention to his career or legal views -- the only opinion of his I can recall was that a homeless person living under a bridge did not have the same rights in regards to police searches of his belongings as did someone in a dwelling he owned or rented.

    Anonymous person was only hoping to get some insight into the Connecticut Legal Mind, since CT has been one of the most important battleground states for property rights.

    Sadly, I fear the expropriators will be running amock. Kids, get out there and study urban planning, you might become the next Robert Moses!
