INSTITUTE FOR JUSTICE ON ABC TONIGHT!: IJ, the spiffy legal team that helps cabdrivers, hair braiders, and poor kids, will be on ABC’s “World News Tonight” talking about how Mississippi wants to snatch rural homes and give the land to Nissan.
The friend who told me about this writes, “Eminent domain is an issue like farm subsidies–some think it is boring, but it often involves scandalous behavior by the government and is of great importance to large numbers of Americans. It’s the banal side of socialism.”
Here’s the IJ press release: “The Institute for Justice continues to bring the real-world impact of our cases into America’s living rooms. Tonight, ABC World News Tonight will profile our eminent domain case in Canton, Mississippi, where we represent Lonzo Archie and other rural property owners who stand to lose their homes because the state wants the land to give to Nissan for a truck manufacturing facility. The ABC news feature follows on the heels of a six-minute segment on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition in late March and a Wall Street Journal editorial in January.
