Dan Hannula, founding partner of Hannula Halom & Scherz, was recently invited to speak at the “Eminent Domain: Current and Emerging Issues” seminar, put on by CLE International, in Las Vegas. His presentation, titled “Taking it All: When Power Line Easements Had to Take the Whole Property,” dealt with “uneconomic remnants” in condemnation. An “uneconomic remnant” is a situation where after some portion of a landowner’s property has been taken, the remaining portion has been so greatly impacted that the government must pay for all of the property. He taught the case with Wisconsin appraiser Kurt Kielisch.
The Las Vegas convention is the second time Mr. Hannula has presented this year. Earlier in the summer, Dan taught at the Eminent Domain and Land Valuation Litigation conference, an annual conference put on by American Bar Association and American Legal Institute in Austin, Texas.
Dan has litigated and tried numerous condemnation cases, primarily on behalf of landowners. He also worked for many years helping injured people with their personal injury and workers compensation claims. He even argued a case in front of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, helping change the law to ensure that victims of underinsured and uninsured motorists could use all the insurance coverage they paid for.
If you have a personal injury, workers compensation, or condemnation claim, give us a call to discuss how we may be able to help solve your problem.
