"Lawsuits were filed Tuesday aimed at stopping an affluent suburban village from using the legal concept of eminent domain to take over a privately owned golf course."Wow, taking a private golf club to turn it into a public golf course. Now I'm really getting angry about eminent domain abuse.
And there's this:
"Wilson said in a statement that the takeover "has nothing to do with a master plan that promotes the public good or eliminating blight, issues usually behind eminent domain. Rather, it is a naked grab for private property in an apparent effort to satisfy the private desires of a few elected officials."No kidding? Politicians would be like that?
