Case Update: Brooks v. United States, CFC No. 15-843 L

More than 125 North Carolina landowners have filed their inverse condemnation claims against the federal government. These landowners are seeking compensation for the taking of their property for the City of Shelby rail-trail conversion. The government must respond to these claims by May. Thereafter, the parties will enter the valuation stage of the litigation wherein they determine the amount of damages the federal government owes these landowners. 

Any additional landowners who are not already represented by counsel are encouraged to contact Arent Fox.

For more information about this case, please contact Lindsay Brinton.
