Seizing Property

The Supreme Court is turning down a request for it to reconsider its ruling this year that gives local governments more power to seize people's homes.

That five-to-four June ruling spurred widespread criticism and led two groups to try to seize properties owned in New Hampshire by Justices David Souter and Stephen Breyer.

Justices didn't comment Monday in their refusal to reconsider the case. Requests for a reconsideration of rulings are rarely granted.

The court backed a Connecticut economic development project that included seizing private homes.
