May 2019: Todd Amspoker and Ryan Zick successfully completed a major jury trial in Alameda County Superior Court regarding the value of property taken in eminent domain proceedings. The case concerned property on the shore of the San Francisco Bay, which was taken for establishment of a public trail and shoreline park. After a 3 and ½ week trial, the jury returned a verdict in precisely the amount advocated by Todd and Ryan. As part of this verdict, Todd and Ryan successfully convinced the jury to reject a more than $6.5 million claim for severance damages.
