Meghan S. Largent Interviewed in Miami Today over Landowner Compensation in Ludlam Trail Project

Lewis Rice member Meghan S. Largent spoke with Miami Today about Lewis Rice’s case on behalf of Miami landowners suing the federal government for the taking of their land for the Ludlam Trail. The interview focused on the status of the owners’ case. Meghan emphasized the lawsuit is not adverse to the Ludlam Trail, but rather seeks to have the government compensate the owners for the land taken from them for the Ludlam Trail via eminent domain. Earlier this year, Lewis Rice won a significant victory in the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit which overturned the lower court’s ruling and allowed these landowners’ claims for compensation to proceed. The case is now back before Judge Marian Blank Horn in the United States Court of Federal Claims.

Meghan represents landowners nationwide pursuing takings claims against the federal government for the taking of their property without just compensation. She litigates 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. In these rails to trails takings, Meghan focuses on both proving the taking has occurred as well as establishing the value of the property that was taken. Her goal is to obtain compensation from the government for land taken for the public recreational trail.
