Eminent domain can also force businessmen out of their shops.
Eminent domain is carried out for several reasons. One is to expand roads

new home. Often, judges allow this to go through to the end. Those are just two
examples of eminent domain.
Over a five-year period, eminent domain affects approximately 10,000
people. Many of these cases force people out of their homes. Though eminent
domain may not be a very happy situation, as I said before, you have no choice.
Some people do not agree with eminent domain and some do. If you agree with
