Radley Balko has a list of some new takings in the making, including this item:

-Milwaukee -- Developers, city economic development officials and commercial real estate attorneys - including some involved with eminent domain cases - have been waiting for the decision.


Negotiations on relocating some of Bayshore's tenants have been delayed lately, Maslowski said.

He believes the attorneys for some tenants were deliberately postponing meetings in hopes of using a court ruling that would have curtailed condemnation powers. Such a ruling would have given tenants additional leverage to negotiate better terms for their relocation, Maslowski said.

The court's ruling to uphold the expanded right of condemnation should "eliminate that cloud," Maslowski said.
