New London Pressing Forward

In today's news:
Some Connecticut residents staged a protest Tuesday night before a city council meeting in New London, Conn.

But council members did not change their minds about a plan to seize private homes to make way for a private development.

The council heard a lot of criticism during a public hearing.

Their decision to take some homes to make room for the private development was the "eminent domain" case that made it all the way to the Supreme Court last month where the judges ruled in the council's favor.
