In Johnson County all 'Eminent Domain' cases are filed with the County Clerk and are heard by a board of special commissioners appointed by the presiding judge of the court in which the case is filed. Once the application is filed and the fees paid, the condemning party must contact the appropriate Civil Court Coordinator to get the board appointed and set a hearing date. After the special commission rules any party not satisfied with the award may file an 'Objection' to the award. Upon filing of the `Objection' the case will then be heard by the presiding judge for that court.
