Claims Filed for Compensation in North Carolina Ecusta Trail Rail-to-Trail Case

On Monday, June 28, 2021, a federal agency issued a Notice of Interim Trail Use or Abandonment allowing for the conversion of the Hendersonville-to-Brevard rail corridor to the Ecusta Trail. The next day, June 29, 2021, Lewis Rice eminent domain lawyers Lindsay S. C. Brinton and Meghan S. Largent filed claims for the land taken from landowners for the bicycle-pedestrian trail in North Carolina. If landowners want to be paid for that taking, they have to file for compensation. Lindsay and Meghan will be filing an amended complaint by July 20, 2021 with additional landowners. If landowners are interested in filing a claim, they should contact Lindsay or Meghan at (314) 444-7777 by this Friday, July 16, 2021.

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.
