The owner of a business in Bristol County recently sued the city of Fall River claiming that the city unfairly took his property through eminent domain proceedings. In 2004, the city and the owner of the business entered into negotiations for acquiring the man’s property as part of a city redevelopment project. Without being able to come to an agreement, the city hired an appraiser to determine the value of the man’s property so it could be taken through eminent domain proceedings. The Bristol County man claims that it was improper to rely upon just one appraiser, and also that the state’s laws are unconstitutional because they do not provide for loss of business damages. The man is claiming that his land was undervalued by the appraiser, and that his business lost millions of dollars in revenue each year because they were forced to relocate to a smaller location.
