Problems of Property
First the hurricane, now a housing price surge in New Orleans, Reuters reports. "The state lifted a stay on evictions in early November, and relief officials said many evacuated tenants had not been contacted before being kicked out," the article states. Hmmmm: now that the European Court of Human Rights ruled that a corporation's human rights were violated because it was not informed of an adverse possession claim, I wonder whether any court in the U.S. will trumpet the human rights of New Orleans renters who have been evicted without any notice. Or do human rights only belong to those with property?
