it used to be basically that emminent domain ment that it had to be absolutly for the public good for example parks or widening a street ect. this ruling basically told all city and state officials that you can purchase private land for "just compensation" and put in a strip mall so you can collect more taxes. like i did say it isnt an unconstitutional ruling in the simplest sence. however the message it is sending to private citizens is loud and clear. money talks and you[Joe Citizen] can take a hike.
