Per curiam, the Fifth Circuit finds a Texas federal court improperly decided that the takings clause claims against Texas may proceed in federal court. The takings clause, applied through the Fourteenth Amendment to states, does not provide a right of action against a state. The Texas Supreme Court recognizes takings claims under federal and state constitutions, and the Fifth Circuit lacks jurisdiction. Vacated and remanded.
