Judge Bradshaw-Hull Screws Landowner

Via Rhymes with Right. Judge Bradshaw awards this guy 1 dollar for 105 acres so that Houston Port Authority can can port more ships, then makes him pay all the court cost with interest. It looks like outright thievery to me. Something smells, and the odor seems to be comming from the Judges chambers. None of the larger MSM outlets seem to be intrested in this story. But the Citizen picked up on it.

Seureau fought for nearly three years to protect his property, in his family for more than 150 years, from the Port's power of eminent domain, only to lose his case in May of last year in the court of Harris County Civil Court Judge Lynn Bradshaw-Hull.
The judge ruled that having paid Seureau $1, the Port now owns the fee simple title to the property. Seureau was also ordered to give back the Port's previous payment of more than $1.9 million at 5.75 percent interest and pay the Port's court costs at the same interest rate.
Seureau has appealed the ruling, and he and his attorneys are currently in negotiations with the Port. Port officials declined to comment on the case, but confirmed that they are working with Seureau to reach an agreement.
The judge is up for re-election. I wonder what how the money is being routed to her. It also makes me feel better about forcing the Port Authority out of Galveston. She is one Republican that needs to lose. These aren't nice people. This is a ever growing, and very powerful agency with lots of money and absolutely no accountability.

Sir: As a former Judge with Eminent Domain Jurisdiction for 17 years, and a 48 year Attorney I feel qualified to comment on your accusation against Judge Lynn-Bradshaw Hull,
You are totally incorrect. When the landowner failed to prove the land value as required by the Texas Constitution, Rules of Evidence and Stare-Decisis, the Court had no alternative but to rule as it did. Shame on you for your lack of professionalism and your incorrect asserations. If you are truly interested, contact any experience Condemnation Attorney and see what they tell you. You owe the Judge an apology. Charles Coussons, Attorney and Involuntarily Retired Judge.

Anonoymous. There is no way that the lasnd was only worth one Dollar. The poor excuse for a judge Lynn Bradshaw Hull Knows that. As well as the Houston Port Authority. I do not know what jurisdiction you were in as a judge. But you obviously don't have a clue on what you are talking about. I don't know what your relationship with the judge is, and I'm no lawyer. but its very clear to anyone even Judge Hull that the propery was worth much more than a single dollar. The judgement was punitive for some reason and had nothing to do with what Judge Hull knew the land was worth. If the land owner could not present a case there was no reason she could not just let the previous offer stand. The old offer should have been proof that the property was worth at least that much.

Judge Bradshaw-Hull is a lousy judge. She's absolutely sickening. She's all about total self-aggrandizement at every moment, even if she occassionally gets the law right.
