Alabama man Craig Boutwell filed an appeal of a condemnation order on his property, being taken by the state for highway-building eminent domain purposes. He filed 30 days after the order was filed in probate court, on the advice of a probate judge (not the same judge who filed the order) that this met the state's 30-day deadline for appeal. But since a judge had signed the order the day before it was officially filed, the Alabama Supreme Court started the count from the signing, not the filing, and says Boutwell was too late and has no further recourse.
