Judgment in favor of Missouri Department of Transportation

John Hein and Bill Sauerwein represented and defended the Missouri Highway and Transportation Commission (“MoDot”) against a class action lawsuit brought by a group of property owners who sought more than $1.5M from MoDOT related to its expansion of Highway 141. The court awarded Summary Judgment to MoDOT on July 7, 2015. In its judgment disposing of the class action case, the court adjudicated the rights and authority held by Trustees under recorded subdivision indentures and stopped the class action Plaintiffs from attacking the validity of the sale of property to MoDOT. Following the hearing conducted by John Hein, the court entered its written judgment holding that, “Under these facts, Missouri law prohibits the Plaintiffs from now seeking to attack the terms and validity of the sale, and judgment should be entered in MoDOT’s favor accordingly.”
