Eminent Domain in NJ: Halper Family Feud
New Jersey Eminent Domain Law Blog has a post here on the notorious case of the Halper Family, which has been fighting eminent domain for a long time now.
Unfortunately, it appears that the Halpers will ultimately be evicted. My prediction is that the jury verdict will be reversed by the Appellate Division and remanded to the trial court for a new trial with instructions regarding the proper date of valuation. And sadly, seven plus years after the date of taking (which occurred in 1999), the Halpers will not have received their constitutional right to just compensation.
