Supreme Court Justice David Souter probably never expected his vote to permit a Connecticut town the power to seize the homes of citizens would come back to haunt him. But it may. An effort by a Los Angeles advertising entrepreneur to persuade the city fathers of Weare, N.H., to turn the tables on Souter by seizing his home and building a hotel on the site is gaining steam.
The Lost Liberty Hotel Project
The Supreme Court ruled that city governments should be allowed to take private property from one person and give it to a developer. So we decided that 34 Cilley Hill Road in Weare, New Hampshire would be a nice place to build The Lost Liberty Hotel. Why is this location essential? It is the home of David Souter, one of the Justices that voted in favor of this decision.
