True North Law represents hundreds of Sarasota, Florida, landowners in three lawsuits filed in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. In the most recently-filed lawsuit, Barron, et al. v. United States, Thor Hearne has filed a comprehensive motion for summary judgment asking the court to hold the government liable for taking 18 landowners’ property for the extension of the Legacy Trail public recreational rail-trail. The motion argues the federal government violated the Fifth Amendment when it took these landowners’ property without paying them “just compensation.”
True North’s brief in support of its motion is available here.
