  • Violet Dock Port Inc. LLC v. St. Bernard Port Harbor & Terminal District

    The Louisiana Supreme Court approved the forcible transfer of private commercial property to eliminate competition with a public enterprise—and for the benefit of another private entity. In doing so, it blessed the use of eminent domain for anti-competitive purposes that are antithetical to the public interest. This concretely demonstrates the perverse implications of the Supreme Court’s regrettable and widely condemned decision in Kelo v. City New London, 545 U.S. 469 (2005).
