Thor Hearne Featured in KCUR Coverage of Extensive Missouri Bike Plan

Arent Fox Partner Thor Hearne and the Federal Takings team were recently highlighted by KCUR, Kansas City's flagship NPR station, in their report on the planned conversion of the abandoned Rock Island railway line into a new, 145-mile Rock Island Trail. Soon after the federal Surface Transportation Board approved this Rails-To-Trails conversion, Arent Fox filed a lawsuit on behalf of 237, now over 300, plaintiffs.

The article recognizes that Thor has argued these kinds of cases for nearly 20 years, and Arent Fox now represents some 3,000 landowners in multiple suits nationwide seeking compensation for the taking of their property.
