MH Prevails on Eminent Domain Appeal

September 16, 2021

Case Studies

In representing a municipal client, MH successfully defended against an attempted use of the repurchase statute by a landowner who sought to recover land that had been previously condemned. MH argued that permitting the use of the statute in that case would have, in that case, amounted to a retroactive application of the repurchase statute.
