DETROIT -- The owner of a Detroit collision shop alleges city building officials launched a campaign of harassment against him and his business after he refused to sell his property to a politically connected developer.




What happened to the "New Detroit" we are promised? This appears to be the same old way things are done.

Why harass when they can just use eminant domain? Seems to me that if they missed that boat, then they are dumber than thought.

To help you out. It's not "new Detroit" . . . he calls it the "Next Detroit". I, myself, am still looking for the Detroit in the present. God knows you can't go to Next before you deal with the Here and Now! Right!

Eminent domain cannot be used on behalf of strictly private developers in Michigan now, according to its Supreme Court.
