Cameron University Kelo vs City of New London Discussion

Question Description

I’m working on a law case study and need a sample draft to help me study.

1) In your own words, describe the conduct/actions that led to this legal dispute.  It is important that you list important details.  The goal is to identify the facts that led to the dispute.  Do NOT discuss the legal proceedings at the trial court or appeals court level.  I am interested only in the original conduct that occurred in the City of New London, before a lawsuit was ever filed.

2) HOLDING.  One of the primary concerns is this case is that private property was transferred to other private parties (not to a local or federal government unit as is typically the case).The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the City of New London, holding that economic development qualifies as a public use. Explain at least three of the Court’s reasons for why economic development qualifies as a pubilc use.

3) Judicial review means that the courts determine whether or not a law or lower court decision is constitutional.   Who/what created the power of judicial review?
