Delaware Nuisance Law

A house in Wilmington has been ordered closed under the Delaware Drug Nuisance and Social Vices Abatement Act. It is the first time such action has been taken in Wilmington. However, similar action was previously taken against a house in West Rehoboth.

I have mixed feelings about this law. It seems like a great idea on the surface- I don’t think your average law abiding citizen thinks “my dream house is going to be right next to a crack house.” I guess what worries me is the potential for abuse with the provisions about lewd acts and obscene material.
