Kelo v. New London Debate

I just want to thank Professor Bob Anderson, The Institute for Justice's Bill Mauerer, and the Executive Board for putting on a great debate today. For me, it was informative, interesting, and shed a lot of light on the issue. And I love that Mr. Mauerer had the opportunity to explain the difference between the free market and politicians being "pro-business".

What did other people think?

Did they discuss the recent Washington cases such as the Sound Transit one where Sound Transit just had to post on their website that they were taking some land and that counted as notice?

No, but they did talk about the Sinking Ship Parking Garage, and discussed many various avenues of side stepping the state constitutional protections against eminent domain abuse.
