Foreclosure Battleground

A war is developing over the right for cities to use eminent domain to save homeowners from foreclosure, specifically those in Richmond. The Federal Housing Finance Agency is threatening legal action against municipalities that attempt to stop foreclosure using eminent domain, while the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a suit against the FHFA "seeking information on whether it's been unduly influenced by the banking industry."
