Minneapolis Eminent Domain Attorney Defending Business Displaced by the Met Council's Southwest Light Rail Project

For those of you that may have missed this on the news last night, WCCO did a story about one of my Minneapolis clients that was forced to relocate as a result of the Metropolitan Council's Southwest Light Rail Project. This story shows the severe financial impact these projects can have upon businesses that have their property taken by eminent domain and then forced to relocate to a new site. The statement by the representative from the Met Council that displaced businesses are entitled to a maximum payment of $50,000 is pure nonsense and displays a fundamental misunderstanding of the applicable relocation laws. If you know of anyone being impacted by projects like, please have them get in contact with me so I can explain their rights to relocation benefit payments.
