Connecticut Families Plan to Fight Relocation
The Supreme Court ruled this past week that local governments can seize private property for use in public projects. The decision paves the way for the city of New London, Conn., to proceed with an economic development plan. The ruling also means that seven families living in New London's working-class neighborhood of Fort Trumbull now face being forced from their homes. But the homeowners say the struggle is not over.
