Case Update: Sykes v. United States, CFC No.15-559L

A group of Greenville 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 for the City of Greenville rail-trail conversion. The government has already agreed to its liability for taking these landowners’ properties and the parties are proceeding to the valuation stage of the case. The parties have selected a joint appraiser – Corbin Haskell out of Greenville – to value the government’s taking. Mr. Haskell will inspect the properties in April and should have his reports completed by summer. The landowners in this case should be paid before the end of the year.

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.
