Hands off! North Kansas City loses eminent domain case

Score one for the little guy.

A Missouri appeals court has issued a unanimous ruling prohibiting North Kansas City from seizing a Burger King via eminent domain.

City officials in the municipality of 4,200, which is surrounded by Kansas City, want a private developer to build a pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use project on the site, which sits east of Interstate 35 along the city’s main commercial thoroughfare.
