Won Defense Verdict in Largest Commercial Eminent Domain Trial in Ohio

July 26, 2011

In the largest commercial eminent domain trial in Ohio history, Steve Kaufman was lead trial counsel in a five-week trial won by the City of Cleveland against a neighboring city. The neighboring city had filed an eminent domain action to take Cleveland’s 150-acre IX Center needed for Cleveland’s plans to expand the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport for an international runway. After the City of Cleveland won, The Plain Dealer hailed it as a “victory for the entire Northeast Ohio region.”
