Terrell Graham and his wife’s family have owned their ranch in the Texas Hill Country for over 100 years. It’s remained a working farm and cattle ranch, and now Texas state government is stealing their land so private developers can discharge treated sewage from 1,500 new homes into the Lux family’s dry creek bed. Texans are supposed to have constitutional protection against eminent domain for private gain, but what about land heists that don’t involve eminent domain yet are still clearly for private gain? What about when government steals private property for its own gain, outside any perceptible public use? Apparently, there is no such protection for Texans.
