Activists angered by a US Supreme Court ruling that homes can be demolished for public developments are trying to seize the home of one of the judges involved.They want to seize his house and build a hotel for the 'public benefit'
About 60 people rallied in the small New Hampshire town of Weare on Sunday, where Justice David Souter has a house.
The protesters say they have enough signatures from Weare residents to put their proposal to a town vote in March.
I seriously doubt that it will get much further, but perhaps it will act as a shake up for judges that sometimes their decisions have consequences beyond the abstract. if they do take the house then I will feel sorry for the judge and his family, but perhaps the point will be made. Of course this rule did not affect me in the UK but I still thought it was wrong.
