U.S. District judge in Texas declines to award the Bush Administration immediate possession of 10 acres of private property on the U.S border. Apparently, his reasoning is not based on protection of citizens from federal power, but on the basis of details about boundaries and access. He has ruled that the details of compensation can be worked out of land titles change hands. That's probably a hollow victory for the Texans affected.
