What is eminent domain?

Play Video The Power of Eminent Domain

"Eminent Domain" - also called "condemnation" - is the power of local, state or federal government agencies to take private property for "public use" so long as the government pays "just compensation." The government can exercise its power of eminent domain even if the owner does not wish to sell his or her property.
