    Anyone remember a big Chicago eminent domain case?

    I can't find it online but I know somewhere in the 2000s there was a high-profile Chicago lawsuit concerning eminent domain. The situation was that the government was demolishing a low-income area just to give the land to developers (probably more complicated than that, but that's the gist of it); I know this situation is common but this was a big showdown and it took place in Chicago. Anyone remember or am I too vague?

    I vaguely remember a newspaper article about tension surrounding early-stage gentrification in and around parts of Cabrini-Green, of all places, and I think at least one section of the project was being redeveloped in some manner, but I don't recall any details. Maybe it'll help you focus your search, at least.
