Defeated local utility’s motion for summary judgment in inverse condemnation and trespass case in which Bloom Sugarman’s client is alleging that the utility buried its electrical conduit and facilities on the client’s property outside the scope of the utility’s recorded easement. This matter will now proceed to a jury trial this summer where our client will be allowed to present evidence in its favor.
Successfully negotiated that the condemning authority moves its proposed building to another piece of our client’s property and thereby significantly reduced the negative impact on the client’s more valuable tract.
Successfully negotiated that the condemning authority alter its routing decision to significantly reduce the negative impact on the client’s commercial traffic flow and also increase the “just compensation” awarded to client.
Bloom Sugarman won a major victory for a beach-front condo owner’s association against a developer who attempted to defraud the condo owners by removing the beach lot from the association’s common property without their knowledge. First, Bloom Sugarman secured a victory before the trial court when the Judge declared that the condo owners were the rightful owners of the beach and entitled to over $1.1 million in damages. Then, we successfully defended the decision on appeal to the First District Court of Appeals, who affirmed the lower court’s opinion in full.
