Eminent Domain

  • In an eminent domain case brought by CalTrans to take a pylon sign a portion of which was owned by our client to enlarge a freeway off ramp, worked with other aligned property owners in obtaining an order dismissing the case because of CalTrans’s failure to comply with statutory notice requirements
  • In an eminent domain case brought by the San Diego Metropolitan Transit Board to take land used by our client’s big box retail operation, used the leverage of a challenge to the agency’s right to take the property to obtain a settlement reducing to insignificance the amount of our client’s land being taken and imposing on the agency work rules that eliminated any adverse impact of the agency’s construction work on our client’s operations
  • In an eminent domain case brought by a pipeline utility, used the leverage of a challenge to the utility’s right to take the property to obtain a settlement imposing work rules that eliminated any adverse impact of the utility’s construction work on our client’s operations
