The mystery four words

I mentioned in an earlier post that the City’s counsel in Kelo told the Court he was going to close with four words, but then his time expired and they remained a mystery. A helpful email correspondent says that the counsel said to the press outside the Court after argument that the words were “federalism, boundaries, discretion, and precedent.” Ok, so maybe it wasn’t such a loss that he didn’t get that last line out.
