Keith Pickard on Channel 13 News for Eminent Domain Fraud Case

Keith Pickard is representing a local Las Vegas business in a fraud case that grew out of a failure to disclose the imminent condemnation proceedings associated with Project Neon.

According to the complaint Keith filed last week, the landowner signed a six-year lease with Gwen Bartholomew, who was leasing space to open a Louisiana-style sandwich shop called Streetcar Po-Boys. Ms. Bartholomew alleges in her complaint that the landlord knew that the space would be subject to a government taking within approximately a year, but intentionally concealed that fact to induce Ms. Bartholomew into leasing the space.

Channel 13 recently interviewed Keith and ran a news story about the lawsuit October 27, 2014. You can view the story, including Keith’s interview, here:
