Clear Channel v. Dallas County

Date: August 11, 2011

Texas Supreme Court

NFIB is asking the Texas Supreme Court to determine whether the Texas Constitution’s Takings Clause allows a government entity to negotiate a direct purchase of private property from one of several property owners and then claim that, because of the purchase, the government entity is now a private party not required to compensate owners of remaining interests.  Letting this ruling stand will also have particularly detrimental effects on small businesses.

Status: DECIDED. Amicus brief filed 04/27/09.  The petition was denied on October 23, 2009.
