Kelo Backlash

Positive Liberty’s Timothy Sandefur notes that the backlash of Kelo hasn’t accomplished much so far:

In the months after the Kelo decision was announced there was much talk of a “backlash” in the states. Since state law can provide greater protections to people than federal law does, people hoped to change state law to protect themselves from eminent domain abuse. But, as I argue in a forthcoming paper (which will be posted on SSRN shortly), the backlash so far has accomplished little.

He has a lot more.
