Annotations

  • Where publication and notice requirements of the public hearing required were not strictly complied with, plaintiffs are nevertheless precluded from bringing an action to contest the validity of the proceedings where plaintiffs have received and accepted their eminent domain award. Duffey v. School Dist. No. One of Washington County, 200 Neb. 702, 265 N.W.2d 212 (1978).

  • A school district has the power of eminent domain, and the only legislative restrictions limit the school site to fifty acres, and public parks and fairgrounds may not be condemned. Father Flanagan's Boys' Home v. Millard School Dist., 196 Neb. 299, 242 N.W.2d 637 (1976).
