Court backs state in Grand Lake St. Marys case

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio Supreme Court is siding with the state in a case involving compensation for landowners for flooding losses near Grand Lake St. Marys.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday turned down a request by landowners’ lawyers to hold the state in contempt of previous court rulings on the compensation.

At issue is how fast the Department of Natural Resources has responded to a court order to compensate 87 landowners near the lake.

Attorneys for the landowners, almost all farmers, argue the state is revoking previous good faith financial offers and saying it will make newer and lower offers.

The state agrees landowners should be compensated but also wants new studies of the flooding’s effect considered.
