Texas Tales

Texan Land & Cattle v. City of Houston

Mr. Hill was lead counsel in the trial court successfully trying the “Wood Oil” portion of the case to the court and the damages to the jury. Thereafter, in upholding the judgement the intermediate Court of Appeals set out a thorough analysis of prejudgment interest, as applied to an inverse eminent domain case. This case resulted in a large recovery on a zero offer. Mr. Hill highlighted in the case that a bad or no initial offer, does not project the final outcome.

Taub v. Dedman

One of the longest running cases in Harris County lasting almost two decades. Mr. Hill was lead counsel in this seminal case. It took 16 years with appeals to conclude. This case stands for many propositions including a thorough analysis of material and substantial impairment of access and once again regardless of sovereign immunity the government may be sued for a taking. This case settled for monetary and non-monetary consideration. Mr. Hill learned throughout this case that in the realm of law, perseverance triumphs over time, his unwavering commitment ensured success in this case regardless of its duration.

“But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas?

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too. “

– John F. Kennedy, Rice Stadium September 12, 1962.
