Eminent Domain & Property Rights

"The federal government's power of eminent domain has long been used in the United States to acquire property for public use. Eminent domain appertains to every independent government. It requires no constitutional recognition; it is an attribute of sovereignty." Boom Co. v. Patterson, 98 U.S. 403, 406 (1879). May 15, 2015.

Or is it that simple?

We strongly suggest you read a legal treatise on the history of eminent domain at the following link. It is lengthy but well worth the read:

"The Messy History of the Federal Eminent Domain Power"


The right to exclude ANYONE from your property is an inviolate, fundamental, constitutional right and fully supported by law precedent. This right to exclude extends to government agents and even law enforcement. We have incorporated the governing law precedent into our new "Revocation" No Trespass sign that can be a companion to our existing No Trespassing sign, or the sign can stand by itself.
