Fort Worth Star-Telegram – ICLE Academic Affiliate Andrew Morriss was quoted by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in a story about the State of Texas’ attempt to use eminent domain to seize a developer’s 5,000-acre property. You can read full piece here.

That number is “staggering,” said Andrew Morriss — a professor at Texas A&M’s School of Law and The Bush School of Government and Public Service — considering that the same property sold for about a quarter of that price earlier this year.

“That’s a surprising number,” Morriss said. “Anybody who could flip their property in that short a time, for that staggering an increase, would be a remarkable investor.”
