This is a highly complex issue but here is a case where some damages were awarded to the landlord and the tenant for eminent domain and inverse condemnation type of case in KY. Notice, however, that the damage award was reversed on appeal. In this case, the verdict awarded the lessees $28,350 as damages for the portion of the leasehold taken, $4,150 as resulting damages to the leasehold interest, $215 for use of a temporary easement, and $8,500 for loss of business during the highway construction period.
