Somin Addresses Colorado Property Rights Case on the Air

Amy Oliver's December 13 news radio show on Colorado's KFKA 1310 AM featured Professor Ilya Somin with a discussion of the Colorado Supreme Court's recent decision in the important property rights case of Wheat Ridge Urban Renewal Authority v. Cornerstone Group.

In the case, the developer sued to compel the city to go through with the condemnation and transfer the affected property against its will after the city decided to cancel the project. The state's high court ruled for the city in deciding the case.

Somin holds that the decision undermines property rights more than it protects them because the Court's reasoning allows the government nearly unlimited condemnation ability.
