Life Imitates Art of the Day: The offices of Portland-based lawyer Randal Acker happen to be housed inside a quaint 1894 Queen Anne Victorian surrounded by ongoing construction associated with Portland State University, so he did what anyone in a similar situation would do: He tied a bunch of balloon to the house a la the now-classic scene from Pixar’s Up.
To add to the realism, Acker’s “Figo House” was nearly seized by TriMet through eminent domain a few years back. “I told them that if I had to do eminent domain law for the next two years to save the house, I would do it,” Acker said. He organized a protest and managed to get TriMet to back down.
