WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to consider a property rights case involving a redevelopment project in New York state where businessmen are fighting local government efforts to take their land.
The businessmen say the village of Port Chester, N.Y., filed a condemnation petition to acquire their property the day after the businessmen rejected what they said was a demand by the project developer for $800,000.
