Barron Alder Client Featured in Texas Observer Article

March 11, 2019 Posted in Articles

The Texas Observer featured an legal battle over claims of contamination on a south Texas ranch.  The Texas Observer reports that “massive levels of beryllium and cadmium, both known human carcinogens, have been detected in the water; beryllium at 190 times the safe level and cadmium at 130 times.”  The adjacent power plant operator, San Miguel Electric Co-op, who is accused of contaminating the ranch is now seeking to acquire ranch property through the use of eminent domain.  Barron Adler lawyers are representing the landowner in connection with the eminent domain matter.
