Woman Loses Fight For Clifton Home

The fight for the home of an 80-year-old woman has come to an end.

A state appeals court ruled lat week that the city of Cincinnati's seizure of Emma Dimasi's home is not considered "excessive taking."

The city used eminent domain to seize her home on Dixmyth Avenue to make way for a road project.  Her son says that the city is moving the road so that Good Samaritan Hospital can expand onto the lot now occupied by Dixmyth.  Something that both the hospital and the city says is coincidence.

Mrs. Dimasi had lived in that house for 50 years.

No word when it will be demolished.
