Current Cases: Hamilton, Marion & Tipton Counties, Indiana

Arent Fox, LLP will be filing a rails-to-trails case on behalf of landowners in Hamilton, Tipton, and Marion Counties along the rail line owned by the City of Fishers, the City of Noblesville, and Hamilton County. Attorney Lindsay Brinton will be holding additional town hall meetings in mid-November to discuss the case. The case involves the federal government taking land to convert the rail line into a public recreational trail. This abandoned railroad segment is roughly 37.56 miles long. Ms. Brinton and her colleagues represent over 1,000 landowners in Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Oregon, South Carolina, New York, Missouri, and Tennessee who are pursuing Fifth Amendment takings claims against the federal government.
