Co-chair of Herrick's Eminent Domain practice, Jennifer Polovetsky, was quoted in a Long Island Herald article discussing the proposed taking of property owned by the Chabad of the Beaches in Long Beach, NY.

In response to a previous quote addressing the possible threat of an eminent domain taking from an attorney for the Chabad that stated, "In order to take a piece of property from a religious institution, the village has got to provide a really compelling justification," Jennifer Polovetsky disagreed. Jennifer said, "As long as the village has followed the laws — the eminent domain procedure laws — and follows all other relevant laws in the planning for the acquisition of this property, it should be considered a valid taking under eminent domain, or eminent domain purposes."
