What supreme court case amended the use of eminent domain?

The big one recently was Kelo v. City of New London. The 5th amendment to the US Constitiution says the government shall not take private property except for public use and by paying just compensation. The 14th amendment has been found to apply this restriction to the states too. This stopped the government from taking property from one private entity and giving it to another. During the urban renewal programs of the 60s, an exception was carved out for property that was "blighted": the government could exercise eminent domain to forceably buy property in blighted areas and then sell it to another private entity. But Mrs. Kelo's house wasn't blighted, so when case let the Ciity of New London force her to sell it to them so they could sell it to a private developer who promised to build stuff that would mean more jobs, it moved the interpretation of "public use" much more toward simply a "public purpose."
