Storyboard Text

  • Where'd all the water go?!!!!!
  • You didn't see the adjustment of water flow law we made? It stops the water to getting to your property...
  • You can't do that! I'm taking you to court!
  • The case of Barron V. Baltimore deals with eminent domain.  Baltimore believes they can repossess Barron's property because it is needed for "public use". Barron believes it is unfair for them to just take his property.
  • The government’s use of eminent domain is a direct violation of the 5th Amendment to the United States Constitution. It is unfair and illegal for the government to mess with my personal property.
  • 5th Amendment:  the government must respect, maintain and uphold the legal rights of all American citizens and that the government must retain a person’s liberties and human rights.
  • We think that we are in the right to restrict water supply. We think  that it ultimately helps out the community. 
  • I have made my ruling! In the case of Barron v. Baltimore I rule in favor of Baltimore. The 5th Amendment only applies to Federal law. Nowhere does it say that city or state have to abide by the amendment. Because of this, individual citizen’s property is not susceptible to the regulation of the 5th Amendment.
