Granted Appeal Summary

Case

HOOKED GROUP, LLC v. CITY OF CHESAPEAKE (Record Number 190764)

From

The Circuit Court of the City of Chesapeake; R. Smith, Judge.

Counsel

L. Steven Emmert (Sykes, Bourdon, Ahern & Levy, P.C.), Joshua E. Baker and Blake A. Willis (Waldo & Lyle, P.C.) for appellant.

Jacob B. Stroman, Kelly Daniels Sheeran and Ellen F. Bergren (Office of the City Attorney of the City of Chesapeake) for appellee.

Assignment of Error

The trial court erroneously sustained the City’s demurrer. The City took the landowner’s easement for ingress/egress by extinguishing the property’s direct access to Callison Drive. This action took a property right and damaged the remaining property without just compensation, violating Art. I, §11 of the Constitution of Virginia.
