Trails Group Resolves Numerous Cases Across the Country

With approximately 45 cases, the Trails Group has represented thousands of landowners across the country and obtained liability rulings leading to numerous settlements in all cases resolved thus far.  When a railroad only has an easement for railroad purposes and transfers the right-of-way to a trail user under the federal Trails Act, the conversion of that right-of-way to a trail for public use is a possible taking of property that may require compensation under the United States Constitution. 

The Trails Group has recovered tens of millions of dollars for clients including resolving cases in Salt Lake County and Utah County, Utah for over $20 million dollars, in Worcester, MA for almost $2.5 million, in Ellis County, TX for nearly $500,000, in Greenville, SC for nearly $500,000, and in Warren County, MS for nearly $300,000.
