Talking eminent domain

Jeff Benedict, author of the newly released book “Little Pink House: A True Story of Defiance and Courage,” will participate in a panel discussion March 4th about the legacy of the eminent domain court fight and the effort to develop the Fort Trumbull peninsula.

The [New London] Day-sponsored forum will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at New London High School. The event is free and audience members will get the opportunity to ask questions and make comments.

Other participants include Susette Kelo, lead plaintiff and owner of the pink house that became synonymous with the controversy; Tom Londregan, city attorney and an advocate for the use of eminent domain to generate economic development; former New London Mayor Beth Sabilia; and Dana Berliner, attorney with the Institute of Justice, which provided legal representation to the homeowners.
