Ft.Wayne Governmental thievery

The Fifth Amendment guarentees that the government cannot seize private property without "just" compensation; but what is a homeowner to do when that government only offers a fourth of what a property is worth? The Kruses are disputing the condemnation of 3/4 of an acre of their property when they disagreed that $5,000. was "just" compensation. The problem is, even if they do win their case, the deed has already been done and that land is forever lost to them, along with their faith in their right of private ownership.
