The battle over evicting the Kelo homeowners continues to heat up. News reports are somewhat spotty and it is hard for me to figure out precisely what is going on with respect to the New London Development Corp. and their efforts to evict the Kelo homeowners. Tom Blumer at Bizzyblog, however, is reporting that in light of the recent efforts of the NLDC to evict the homeowners and to charge them back rent for the past five years, the New London City Council is pressuring the NLDC to remove its chief executive or be dissolved. Tom also reports that the NLDC is rallying behind its executives and will not force them to resign. (Note: Some of the links are registration only and some have expired.) Looks like a real showdown is brewing.
