Real Property Litigation Unit

The Litigation Unit works closely with Bureau staff to protect and defend the public’s interest in real property. It may be called upon to represent various State agencies, authorities, or other public benefit corporations in federal, state and local courts. The Litigation Unit primarily defends State agencies in eminent domain proceedings brought in the Court of Claims. However, the Litigation Unit also defends or prosecutes trespass, nuisance, or quiet title actions involving state property. It may also represent the State agencies in local courts in summary proceedings.
