Developments in eminent domain law part of 2006 Real Property Law
Last year's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in Kelo v. City of New London sparked a fair amount of discussion and controversy, bringing the legal doctrine of eminent domain to the front page. In Ohio, City of Norwood v. Burton brings the eminent domain issue closer to home.
Bruce Ingram, a litigation partner at Vorys Sater Seymour and Pease who has represented public authorities as well as landowners in eminent domain actions; John Gotherman; Counsel to The Ohio Municipal League and Secretary-Treasurer of the Ohio Municipal Attorneys Association; and Gene Krebs, State Director of the Greater Ohio campaign, will present a panel discussion on eminent domain at the 2006 Real Property Law Institute.
This panel discussion will focus on recent developments in eminent domain in Ohio, including the moratorium legislation passed recently by the General Assembly. The panelists will also discuss the meaning of "public use," the economic drivers behind eminent domain, the requirement of "just" compensation and potential statutory/constitutional restrictions on use of eminent domain for economic development.
Other topics included in the 2006 institute include remedies for residential contract default; residential mechanics' lien update; Board of Revision filings; office market outlook; practical internet legal research for the Ohio real estate lawyer; eminent domain post-Kelo; condominium insurance; the financeable ground lease; impact of the new bankruptcy act on real estate practitioners; ethics; and the changing landscape of brokerage services.
