Final Eminent Domain Article
This is the last in a series of articles by Jeff Todd, an attorney with McAfee & Taft, on the issue of eminent domain. In the vast majority of condemnation cases, the condemning authority has the undisputed right to take the target property and the issue for determination is the “just compensation” due as a result of the taking. Ultimately, the decision to settle or take the case to trial will have to be made by the landowner. This decision should not be taken lightly. Rather, numerous factors must be weighed in order to make the right choice.
