Eminent domain claim on Justice Souter's home

The Agitator picked up on a story about a developer who's vying to confiscate Justice Souter's home through eminent domain.

Letter to the Code Enforcement Officer of Weare, Hew Hampshire:

I am proposing to build a hotel at 34 Cilley Hill Road in the Town of Weare. I would like to know the process your town has for allowing such a development.

Although this property is owned by an individual, David H. Souter, a recent Supreme Court decision, "Kelo vs. City of New London" clears the way for this land to be taken by the Government of Weare through eminent domain and given to my LLC for the purposes of building a hotel. The justification for such an eminent domain action is that our hotel will better serve the public interest as it will bring in economic development and higher tax revenue to Weare.

Now you can even sign up for a stay at the Liberty Hotel.
