City of Justin, Tex. v. Rimrock Enters., Inc., No. 02-13-00461-CV (Apr. 2, 2015) (Meier, J., joined by Gabriel, J.).

Held:  As worded, the charge did not transfer to the jury the determination of whether a taking had occurred.  To the extent the charge implied that a taking had occurred, it was not error, or reversible error, because the charge, the jury’s findings, and the trial court’s post-verdict actions are all consistent with an implicit trial court ruling that the City inversely condemned Rimrock’s property.
