US S CT hears Kelo case - coverage/commentary

Last week, the big news was the US Supremes hearing argument in Kelo, the case involving the scope of "public use" in compensated takings - that is, whether local governments can simply take unblighted land from one private owner to then convey it to another private landowner. I've included some links below to briefs, news, commentaries and amicus below.
