Bi-Ed, Ltd. v. Ramsey

In Bi-Ed, Ltd. v. Ramsey, 935 S.W.2d 122 (Tex. 1996), Bi-Ed's predecessor-in-interest sued for access to land, arguing that the disputed property belonged to the city and not Ramsey. Id. at 123. The city was joined as a party. Id. The trial court found that the land belonged to Ramsey and rendered judgment accordingly. Id. The city did not appeal. The Court held that Bi-Ed could appeal despite the fact that it asserted no ownership interest in the property, reasoning that it had a "justiciable interest" in pursuing the case. Id. at 124.
