The Fort Worth Court of Appeals upheld the trial victory for Clay Beard and Tyler Milton in Crosstex DC Gathering Co., J.V. v. Button. Although their property is undeveloped, 26.26 acres was zoned as residential and the remaining 25.83 acres was zoned as commercial. Crosstex, a natural gas provider, attempted to purchase an easement to build a gas pipeline across the Buttons’ 52.09 acres, and eventually filed a suit in condemnation to acquire the right to build the pipeline.
