I am honored to have been invited to deliver the keynote address at the Virginia Bar Eminent Domain conference. There are some very talented lawyers in Virginia and my friend Joe Waldo put together a wonderful conference. I wanted to note that there was a great deal of interest in our Brott v. United States case challenging the federal government’s effort to deny landowners right to a jury trial and right to vindicate their Fifth Amendment right before an Article III court.
Arent Fox partner Thor Hearne and associate Meghan S. Largent wrote an article, titled “The Fifth Amendment Requires the Government to Pay an Owner Interest Equal to What the Owner Could Have Earned Had the Government Paid the Owner the Fair-Market Value of Their Property on the Date the Government Took the Owner’s Property.”
