Tidewater Development and Sales Corporation and Isadore Brill, Trustee, Oliver Ellsworth Rue, Trustee, Gotham Investment Corporation, Philip Smith, Harold E. Luber, Morris Reamer, and Roberta Hoffman, Appellants, v. United States of America, Appellee, 279 F.2d 890 (4th Cir. 1960)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 279 F.2d 890 (4th Cir. 1960) May 30, 1960

John Joseph Baecher and S. Beryl Adler, Norfolk, Va., for appellants.

Joseph S. Bambacus, U. S. Atty., Richmond, Va., Franklin C. Baugh, Asst. U. S. Atty., Norfolk, Va., Perry W. Morton, Asst. Atty. Gen., Roger P. Marquis, S. Billingsley Hill, and Elizabeth Dudley, Attorneys, Department of Justice, Washington, D. C., for appellee.

Before SOBELOFF, Chief Judge, and HAYNSWORTH and BOREMAN, Circuit Judges.


In this condemnation case, the landowner and certain noteholders, to whom it is indebted, thinking the jury's verdict inadequate, complain of the District Court's refusal of a motion for new trial. In denying the motion, the District Court filed an opinion1  which sufficiently shows there was no abuse of discretion in denial of the motion. After considering certain collateral questions which have been raised, we find no reversible error.



United States of America v. 9.85 Acres of Land, More or Less, in City of Hampton, Virginia, and Tidewater Development and Sales Corporation, et al., 183 F. Supp. 402
