Case Update: James v. United States

A group of Chesterfield and Darlington County, South Carolina landowners has filed their inverse condemnation claims against the federal government. These landowners are seeking compensation for the taking of their property. The government has admitted its liability for taking these properties and agreed to pay the landowners their just compensation. The parties have selected a joint appraiser – George (Jake) E. Knight, Jr. out of Columbia, SC – to value the government’s taking. Mr. Knight has inspected the properties and is in the process of preparing the appraisal reports which should be completed by the end of April. The landowners should be paid by year’s end.
