Eminent Domain

Speaker: Dave Roland, Show-Me Institute

Dave Roland studied the constitutional protection of property rights at the Vanderbilt University Law School under the instruction of Professor James Ely, one of the nation’s top experts in the subject.  Upon his graduation in 2004, Dave spent three years in the nation’s capital as an attorney with the Institute for Justice, where he helped to defend property owners nationwide against eminent domain abuse, including the United States Supreme Court’s infamous Kelo v. New London case and Norwood v. Horney, a landmark victory for property rights at the Ohio Supreme Court.  Since coming to the Show-Me Institute in 2007, Dave has continued to work for eminent domain reform, submitting a brief on behalf of the Institute that asked the Missouri Supreme Court to respect the property rights protections built into the state constitution, speaking to a number of groups about the dangers of eminent domain abuse, and publishing op-eds on the topic in newspapers across Missouri.  He recently became a member of the Missouri Bar Association’s Committee on Eminent Domain.
