Land Institute forum debate pros, cons of eminent domain

Proposition 90, a measure that would amend California's eminent domain laws to ban state and local governments from condemning one owner's property and selling or granting it to another, would prevent urban development projects such as Petco Park.

A panel discussing the proposition was held by the Urban Land Institute District Council. Jeff Stoke, a partner with Procopio Cory Hargreaves & Savitch LLP who moderated the program, said the initiative would end the use of eminent domain for redevelopment purposes.
