COURT RULES IN FAVOR OF LAND OWNERS VS. HIGH SPEED RAIL

  

A Friday court decision is being hailed as a victory for opponents of the High Speed Rail project.

87th District Judge Deborah Evans said in a ruling Friday that Texas Central is not a railroad.

Lawyers for Leon County landowners say that means Texas Central has no eminent domain, and could mean an end to the project.

But the private train company maintains its project is still rolling along.

Texas Central says they disagree with Judge Evans' ruling, and they will appeal, as they continue to have conversations with property owners.

The bullet train would connect Dallas to Houston in 90 minutes, with a stop in Grimes County.

Kyle Workman, with Texans Against High-Speed Rail, says the fight is far from over.

State Representative Ben Leman says he will be introducing legislation to fight the bullet train.

Sheriff's from Grimes and Leon Counties said they'll uphold trespassing laws if landowners don't want their property surveyed.
