(L. 1951 p. 300 § 1)

(1954) This law is constitutional. State on Inf. Dalton v. Land Clearance for Redev. Auth. 364 Mo. 974, 270 S.W.2d 44;

(1954) Land Clearance for Redev. Auth. v. City of St. Louis (Mo.), 270 S.W.2d 58.

(1964) Election of city by resolution and vote of people, to come under this law could not be revoked by initiative proceedings since law was not enacted for solely municipal objectives but for state purposes as well, and law remains effective until legislature repeals it or provides by statute for means of withdrawal. Anderson v. Smith (A.), 377 S.W.2d 554.

(1966) Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority Law, §§ 99.300 to 99.660, and the Urban Redevelopment Corporation Law, chapter 353 do not violate the constitutional provisions prohibiting the taking of private property for public use without consent of owner. Annbar Associates v. West Side Redevelopment Corp. (Mo.), 397 S.W.2d 635.

(1968) Where redevelopment authority had condemned plaintiff's land and was now owner and possessor, plaintiff had no legally protectable interest and there was no justiciable controversy for plaintiff to maintain action for declaratory judgment on question of authority's compliance with statutory requirements.  Brooks v. Land Clearance for Redevelopment Auth. (A.), 425 S.W.2d 481.
