The Plainfield School District, $10,500 settlement resolves eminent domain dispute.">

Plainfield, IL: (May-28-08) The Plainfield School District has been embroiled in a legal battle with Dayfield Properties, LLC, the developer of its district transportation center, and the Village of Plainfield, over eminent domain issues. The dispute arose from the District's decision to acquire the former Ball Glass factory at the northwest corner of IL 59 and 143rd Street.

In a recent announcement, officials on both sides of the issue stated that the parties had reached a settlement, in which the District will drop its efforts to secure the site for a district transportation center because of the anticipated expense of legal battles. Additionally, Plainfield school officials have agreed to make a $10,500 settlement payment to the owner of the property, Dayfield Properties, LLC, who in turn, has agreed to not seek a court order requiring the school district to pay additional attorney fees or litigation expenses related to the case. Officials said that eminent domain is a process by which a governmental body can acquire land or property for public use, after a jury decides a fair value for the property.
