Honolulu County saw the beginning of one of America's most important eminent domain cases. In the 1960's, over 72% of the land in Honolulu Count was owned by about 20 people. To rectify this problem the state enacted a law allowing it to condemn up to 5 acre parcels of land at the request of a tenant on that land, and then sell the parcel to the tenant. Hawaii Housing Authority v. Midkiff challenged this law, and the law was upheld by the Supreme Court.
