Case Update: Takings Compensation for Landowners in Miami-Dade, Florida (Castillo v. United States)

Arent Fox LLP has filed a claim on behalf of a group of Florida landowners against the federal government.  For many properties, the government has agreed the railroad only acquired an easement limited to railroad purposes.  We are in the process of moving for summary judgment to establish the government’s liability for taking these owners’ property.  The briefing will be completed by year’s end and we hope to move forward with the appraisal phase early next year.  Additional landowners along the Ludlam Trail extension are still eligible to make a claim for compensation for the government’s taking of their property.  If you would like to learn more about your claim, please contact Lindsay Brinton.
