  • Foreword

    Keeping with the Albany Government Law Review’s tradition of publishing only theme- and symposia-based issues, this book focuses on the controversial topic of eminent domain use in the United States. In addition to the host of articles that survey important and recent decisions impacting the law of eminent domain, advocate for eminent domain reform, and discuss the social and policy implications of eminent domain use and abuse, we have also included two comments—one focused on the liabilities of government officials under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act and the other on a recent U.S. Court of Appeals decision and its implications for municipal accountability in domestic violence cases.
