Action Source: Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Wyoming Private Landowner
Court rules government's Rails-to-Trails project violated private property rights.
On Monday March 10th, Marvin Brandt and his wife shed tears of joy as their near decade long battle with the United States government finally comes to an end after the Supreme Court ruled in their favor. Challenging the Rails-to-Trails project in 2006, Brandt contested the Government’s defense that it retained the right to continue use on an abandoned railway for hikers and bicyclists that bisects his 83 acre parcel of forest land.
