Court Sides With Long Branch in Eminent Domain Dispute

A New Jersey appeals court has denied an attempt by homeowners in Long Branch to get additional compensation from the city in a long-running eminent domain dispute.

Several homeowners sought the money even though the city had eventually abandoned its attempts to acquire their property and other properties as part of a redevelopment effort dating back to the late 1990s.

The homeowners claimed the city’s actions nevertheless lowered their property values and made it more difficult to sell the properties.

They sought damages as well as a refund of property taxes for the time period when the dispute was going through the courts.

Tuesday’s appellate ruling upholds an earlier judge’s decision denying the claim.
