I’ve been reviewing about 170 court cases touching on or dealing with perceptions of resident home value reduction due to the installation of a nearby cell site. The court cases, which date back to about 1988, provide some very illuminating facts about what the courts consider to be reliable evidence, and what is not.
The information I’ve collected is going into my law and policy chapter, which is turning out to be quite interesting.
Sneak peak: Direct references to hedonic price modeling and a Dr. Sandy Bond paper are found in exactly one federal case. The outcome of that case turned on other considerations.
