A small-town nurse named Susette Kelo emerges as the reluctant leader of her working-class neighbors in their struggle to save their homes from political and corporate interests bent on seizing the land and handing it over to Pfizer Corporation. Susette's battle goes all the way to the US Supreme Court and the controversial 5-4 decision in Kelo vs. City of New London gave government officials the power to bulldoze a neighborhood for the benefit of a multibillion-dollar corporation. The decision outraged Americans across the political spectrum, and that passion fueled reforms that helped curb eminent domain abuse.Written by
While the cast list says that Sandra Day O'Connor is the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, she never held that position. However the movie is correct in showing her as the presiding justice at the oral argument where just seven justices were present. Chief Justice Rehnquist was absent due to illness. Associate justice Stevens was also absent due to a travel delay. However both those justices did participate in the final 5-4 decision. See more »
