Vampire Slayers and the Law

Co-blogger Eugene Volokh recently referenced some criminal laws relating to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In this 2007 post, I considered the implications of the show for property rights and “quick take” condemnations. Unlike Eugene, I managed to incorporate Faith into my legal analysis as well. As I pointed out, eminent domain abuse is an excellent example of the rogue slayer’s “want, take, have” philosophy in action. Faith eventually realized the error of her ways. But many state and local governments so far have not.
