Eminent Domain Ruling Gives More Authority to Jury

In the field of eminent domain, Rick E. Rayl, Esq., an attorney with Nossaman, LLP writes about the role of the jury within eminent domain matters.

Last week, California Appellate Court handed an eminent domain win to certain property owners this week in City of Perris v. Stamper.  The key issues in the dispute involved a supposed dedication requirement on the value of the part taken.  The appellate court ruled it was up to the jury -and not the trial court – to decide the impact of the dedication.

For further information, read Rick’s article entitled “The Continuing Effort to Define the Line Between Court and Jury Roles in Eminent Domain.”
