Mr. Rajkowski's primary area of practice is in litigation. In the area condemnation/eminent domain, he has been a strong advocate for landowners' rights. He represents these landowners in a variety of local and state domain eminent proceedings. Most recently, he has had significant involvement in cases against the CapX2020 Project. CapX2020 is a group of public utilities that are in the process of constructing multiple 345kv lines throughout Minnesota, involving hundreds of landowners. He recently argued a case in the Court of Appeals, arguing that the public utilities that are required to take individual landowners' property, should give the property owners enough compensation to purchase a comparable property in their community, and that the utilities should also pay for their relocation benefits. That decision is still pending.
