Casey Pipes helps business owner get just compensation for property

Helmsing Leach partner Casey Pipes recently finished a three-day jury trial in Mobile County involving the condemnation of his client’s business property. The site was approximately half an acre on the Mobile River and had been the location of a family-owned business for multiple generations. The Alabama Department of Transportation took the entire site in a right of way acquisition for the I-10 Mobile River Bridge project. The state of Alabama put on evidence that it owed only $675,000 to the owner, but the jury returned a verdict for $1,636,975. The addition of interest brought the total recovery in the case to $1,965,964.60.
