Educational Meeting for Landowners Between Temple and Belton Discussing Potential Compensation Claims
On Tuesday, June 15, 2021, Lewis Rice federal takings attorneys Lindsay S. C. Brinton and Meghan S. Largent will host an educational meeting at the Residence Inn in Temple, TX to explain why and how a claim can be made against the federal government, timing, how landowners will be represented in pursuing their takings claims, and how compensation will be determined. Lindsay and Meghan will also field any questions from landowners. The meeting is free and open to the public.
Lewis Rice's federal takings attorneys represent landowners throughout the United States pursuing takings claims against the federal government. One primary focus of the group is representing landowners in what is commonly referred to as rails to trails takings. Attorneys in this group litigate cases in the United States Court of Federal Claims on behalf of those whose property was taken by the federal government pursuant to the National Trails System Act, which authorizes abandoned railroad lines to be converted to public parks. The goal is to obtain compensation from the government for the taking of their land for the public recreational trail.
