Bruce Ingram, a partner in the Vorys Columbus office and counsel to a group farmers/landowners, was quoted in a Law360 story about a lawsuit that the famers filed against the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Director James Zehringer for his ongoing retaliation against them for exercising their federal constitutional rights to seek compensation from the state for the flooding of their properties.
The story states:
“‘Since 2011, Director Zehringer has spent millions on the retaliation, taking numerous positions, called absurd and inequitable by Ohio courts, and engaging in other intimidation and coercive tactics for the purpose of grinding down and gradually destroying the farmers’ will to exercise their constitutional rights,’ Bruce Ingram, counsel for the plaintiffs, said in a statement.
The statement noted eight of the people involved in the litigation had died without realizing the ‘just compensation entitled to them.’”
