Eminent Domain - Part 4 of 4: Settlement or Trial? By Jeff L. Todd


This Article first appeared in Oklahoma Farm Bureau Legal Foundation, March 27, 2008.

Ultimately, the decision to settle or take the case to trial will have to be made by the landowner. This decision should not be taken lightly. Rather, numerous factors must be weighed in order to make the right choice.
