Indiana Property Owners Entitled To Jury Trial To Determine Just Compensation

May 2013
Land Use Law Report;2013, Vol. 41 Issue 5, p2
The article discusses the court case Utility Center, Inc. vs. City of Fort Wayne. The Supreme Court of Indiana disagreed that the plaintiff was not entitled to a new hearing, much less a jury trial, because the appeal was from an administrative decision. The Court explained that eminent domain statutes should always be strictly interpreted because they are in derogation of the common law rights to property.
