LAND USES declaring a mistrial, a Kentucky trial judge has thrown out a jury’s May 9 award of $9.5 million to a family forced to sell 80 acres of farmland to an airport developer. When the Kenton County Airport Board needed land for the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport, it offered the family $33,476 per acre, which they rejected. The board sued to take the land by eminent domain. The jury awarded the Conners $101,249 per acre plus $1.4 million for the decrease in value to their remaining 25 acres. Finding that the award exceeded the value placed on the land by either side, the judge ordered a new trial. Kenton County Airport Board v. Marie Conner Family, No. 01-C1-01611 (Boone Co., Ky., Cir. Ct.). PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEYS: Joseph L. Baker, Steven Martin and Debra S. Pleatman, Ziegler & Schneider, Covington, Ky. DEFENSE ATTORNEYS: Philip Taliaferro III, Taliaferro, Mehling, Shirooni, Carran & Keys, Covington; Steve Dallas, Neace & Koenig, Florence, Ky.
