Attorney Wesley Horton, who represents New London and New London Development Corp, speaks to reporters at a press conference on the steps of New London City Hall after it was announced that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the city in Kelo, et al. v. City of New London, et al. in a 5-4 vote. The ruling clears the way for the city to move forward with it's use of eminent domain to claim a 30-acre parcel in the Fort Trumbull neighborhood for economic development, displacing several families.
