Davion scenario


  • In the state of Texas, the state wants to tear down the local houses by the pharmacy so the could build a gas station. The home owners wanted to take this to court because the thought it wouldn't be fair. When they went to court the judge says they could do it because if the constitution doesn't say anywhere that the state can't do something, then the state have's the power to do it. So the judge ruled it and he said no because they wouldn't have a home to live in. The people were lucky because the could have tour there home down. The state built the gas station somewhere else.
