I'd like to invite you to see IJ in action in a major New Jersey eminent domain case. The case involves homeowners in Long Branch, NJ, who stand to lose their homes to a private developer seeking to build beachfront condos. Because New Jersey continues to be one of the worst abusers of eminent domain, this case is being closely watched across the nation.
UPDATE: Read more about it in a Asbury Park Press article. Say a prayer tonight for these homeowners!
We will appear before the New Jersey Appellate Court at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 14, 2008 in Trenton, New Jersey.
The Court is at the Hughes Justice Complex, 25 Market Street. There will be a rally of homeowners and activists before the argument.
To increase your odds of getting a seat, arrive at the Court by 9:00 a.m.
Thank you again for your support, which makes it possible for us to defend the rights of the Long Branch homeowners and many others like them across the country.
Chip Mellor , President
Institute for Justice
