Victory Against Eminent Domain in Ohio

The Ohio Supreme Court has ruled in favor of homeowners in Norwood, Ohio, declaring portions of the state's eminent domain law unconstitutional.

In a unanimous ruling, the court ruled that "economic benefits" to a community do not constitute a valid use of eminent domain.

The court also ruled that "a provision of Ohio's eminent domain law, which prohibits a judge from halting the taking of a government-acquired property before an appeal, is unconstitutional."
