Fort Trumbull

Blighted property lies June 27, 2005 in downtown New London, Connecticut. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled June 23, in a closely watched property rights case, that the stimulation of economic development is a suitable use of the government's power of eminent domain. The decision has brought to a close a legal battle in New London where the city has been fighting to replace about 15 homes in the blighted Fort Trumbull residential neighborhood with a new conference hotel and "riverwalk." New London, a seaside town, was judged a "distressed municipality" approximately 15 years ago by the state of Connecticut.Spencer Platt, Getty Images
