White Paper

What Procedures Must the Government Follow Before Filing an Eminent Domain Lawsuit Against You?


Special procedures are in place to ensure property owners get fair shot .

The government may not aimlessly take private property under eminent domain proceedings without first exhibiting a base reason that the taking was for a public purpose. To safeguard that the taking is truly made for a public purpose, it is mandatory that the government follow explicit statutory requirements for planning public projects.
