Even as the controversial High-Speed Rail project continues to be debated on in the Capitol and challenged in the courts, the California High-Speed Rail Authority (“CHSRA”) is already taking action towards the project. CHSRA has begun to acquire private property to build the foundation for the speed-rail’s tracks. Thousands of properties will be affected by this project; if you are an affected owner, an eminent domain case may reach your door step in no time. It is important that you contact a reputable firm with extensive experience in eminent domain, such as California Eminent Domain Law Group, APC to protect you rights.

The CHSRA is essentially saying “damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.” Project supporters claim that the high-speed rail will create new jobs, increase tax revenue, preserve agricultural lands and better the environment. However, the project will also unequivocally impact thousands of property and business owners. Construction is estimated to take up to 2 decades.

Just recently the CHSRA appointed a new executive staff. James Andrews, Assistant Chief Counsel for CHSRA, will be in charge of the legal strategies enabling CHSRA to take the land needed for the project. This means eminent domain will be used to take private properties.
