OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma Supreme Court Tuesday ruled an initiative petition proposing to restrict government use of eminent domain is unconstitutional.

The state high court held that Initiative Petition 382 violated the single-subject rule of the Oklahoma Constitution and may not be submitted to a vote of the people.

A legal challenge had been filed to the ballot title by several economic development and business groups. The court said that issue is now moot.
