So, instead of paying a fair market price Wal-Mart can bribe the local politicos and save money. I hope they pass that savings on to the customers.
My first thought, after hearing this verdict, was how soon will local governments use this to punish those they don't like. If you complain about anything at all they'll put a Starbucks where your house should be.
This will get people killed. It just won't be the right ones.

Yes, it will get people killed. The first will probably be the poor bastard who has to try to physically evict a crotchety old fart who just refuses to leave. The second will be the old fart for daring to stand up to the almighty government to protect what he now no longer has a right to.
The first to die ought to be the city councilmen and women who were bribed to take his land and the second ought to be the tyrants in black robes who allowed it.
