Posted in Redevelopment

The Texas Supreme Court recently agreed to hear a challenge to a jury’s award of “stigma” damages for contaminated property that was remediated. In that case, the Court will consider whether temporary environmental harm can form the basis of a cause of action.

Oral argument is scheduled for Dec. 5. The case is Houston Unlimited Inc. Metal Processing v. Mel Acres Ranch, case number 13-0084.
