US v. Piza-Blondet, No. 08-2263

By FindLaw Staff on September 11, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In condemnation proceedings involving a 34 acre parcel used by the Federal Aviation Administration for aircraft navigation, the district court's judgment is affirmed where the district court: 1) did not abuse its discretion in excluding defendant's own testimony when the court had excluded similar testimony by defendant's expert; 2) did not err in holding that the "before and after" method was appropriate in valuing the property, assuming a partial taking; and 3) did not err in submitting to the jury unity of use. Defendant's remaining contentions were without merit.
