Ind. Decisions - More on: "Judge could issue ruling on BSU-Hiatt dispute this month"

Updating this ILB entry from March 1st, Douglas Walker of the Muncie Star-Press reported this morning:

MUNCIE — A Delaware County judge has ruled Ball State University can proceed with its efforts to claim a campus-area property through an eminent domain lawsuit. * * *

In a ruling issued Wednesday, Circuit Court 5 Judge Thomas Cannon Jr. ruled that with 93 percent of the building being dedicated to” the educational, housing and support services needed by the university,” the “paramount interest being served is the educational mission of Ball State.”

The judge is now expected to appoint three appraisers to determine the fair market value of the property.

An appeal of his ruling by the Hiatts is anticipated.
