Represented landowner in condemnation action brought by the State to acquire an abandoned right-of-way and adjacent land near the town of Locke for the Delta Meadows State Park. One of the main issues was the nature of the owner’s title to the land, which involved a determination regarding the land as of the date California was admitted to the Union. Defeated State’s contention that all of the land in question was tideland, rather than upland, which resulted in client obtaining right to full market value for such land.
