Judge rules Institute for Justice entitled to attorneys fees/expenses!

The Enquirer is reporting Judge Beth Myers based today’s decision on Ohio Law that “permits non-profit agencies that represent property owners in eminent-domain cases” to be compensated. It remains to be worked how much Rookwood Partners will have to pay of the $850,000+ the IJ is seeking.

: This clarifying email just in from IJ attorney Scott Bullock: “Just looked at the blog and comment and noticed that the commenter said we are funded by major corporations. Of course, this is total nonsense. Less than 1% of our funding comes from corporations, and no one person or entity gives us more than 6% of our budget.”
