This Friday, May 11, International Right of Way Association Chapter 11 (San Diego) will be hosting a great program titled "Eminent Domain Seminar: The Acquisition Process and Litigation Case Study." If you want an update on recent developments in eminent domain, or if you've ever wondered what a relocation appeal hearing or a condemnation trial looks like, this seminar is for you. There are a number of great speakers lined up for the full-day class.
My colleague Rick Rayl and I will be going toe-to-toe in a mock trial on the valuation of a gas station and the loss of business goodwill caused by a public project. I'll be representing the business owner and teaming up with the "owner's" goodwill appraiser, Steve Zamucen. Rick will be representing the agency with the "agency's" goodwill appraiser, Aaron Amster. Steve and Aaron are some of the best eminent domain business appraisers out there, and they'll be sure to create some fireworks (and make Rick and I look good at the same time).
The seminar is being held at Caltrans' San Diego Headquarters, and below is an outline of the topics:
- Fundamentals of Acquisition
- Resolution of Necessity and Order for Prejudgment Possession
- Relocation Appeal Process
- New Cases and Developments in Eminent Domain Law
- Real Estate Appraisal Mock Trial
- Business Goodwill Appraisal Mock Trial
If you're interested in attending, e-mail Cynthia Colburn at Overland, Pacific & Cutler. We hope you'll join us, and we look forward to seeing you there!
