The city of New London in New London County was at the center grounds for one of the most important constitutional cases in the past decade. In reaction to the city's eminent domain taking of her property for the use in a redevelopment project, Susette Kelo challenged the taking arguing that a government body could not take land away from a private party and give it to another private party. She lost in every state court, and eventually the case went to the United States Supreme Court, which sided with the city in New London County, ruling that because there was a legitimate government interest in making the area economically viable again, the taking of Kelo's land was constitutional. Since that time, the developer who the land was supposed to be given to defaulted and never obtained the funding he was promised he would get for the project, and Kelo's home was relocated closer to downtown New London.
