Successfully mediated this case involving two properties adjacent to the Sacramento County Landfill. The action sounded in inverse condemnation and nuisance arising out of a significant delay in scheduled closing of the Landfill. The ten-acre parcels were prime acreage for ranch-style living. Plaintiffs A had lived on their property for years and Plaintiff B had planned to build in anticipation of the Landfill closure, which would have resulted in a large greenbelt behind Plaintiffs’ properties.
Mediated several eminent domain cases in the Central Valley for the California High-Speed Rail Authority and landowners whose properties were identified by the State to be condemned. As the program expanded, I was later approved as a panel mediator for the High Speed Rail program.
