"Kenneth Kupchak, president of the Honolulu-based law firm Damon Key Leong Kupchak Hastert, said that with so many properties yet to be acquired, he expects to see an increase in the number of eminent domain cases along rail's route, especially when HART gets closer to starting construction in Downtown Honolulu and Kakaako. 'There are a number of people along the rail line who are seeking counsel and appraisers' assistance,' he said. 'I'm anticipating there will be litigation.' He said some property owners along the route between Kapolei and Ala Moana Center already have contacted his law firm, but he declined to name them.
