Legal with Leah: Eminent domain

The power of eminent domain has been in the news recently because of a highly visible political candidate. Eminent domain is revisited in these two, four-minute Legal with Leah podcasts, featuring Ohio Farm Bureau Director of Ag Law Leah Curtis.

Part one

Who can take your property and under what circumstances? Ohio Farm Bureau’s Leah Curtis explains the ins and outs of the power of eminent domain. (And yes, she covers how Donald Trump tried to take a little old lady’s house.)


Part two
In the second part of the eminent domain discussion, more about who can take your land (including pipeline companies) and what to do if they try.
