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.
