What do we do?

Here is an interesting question that I have to answer for my ethics in public policy class.

In 2000, the city of New London, Connecticut attempted to put into place an economic development plan that required land that was currently owned by tenants. It was a sound, well done economic plan. About ten property owners sued the city of New London, stating that they could not use eminent domain if their property was being given from them to another private company. It made its way to the U.S. Supreme Court in Kelo vs. New London. The Court ruled that in this case, eminent domain won. The owners did not have the right to their property, because economic development benefits the general welfare of all, even if it gives it to another private entity. What do you think? They would get compensated for the value, of course. Good move or bad?
