Defense attorney Roger Gordon and prosecutor Ilse Bailey discuss the disclosure of informal agreements that were made between the city of Ingram and certain property owners, one of whom owns more than two dozen properties in the Ingram area valued more than $2 million.

Gordon has argued the ordinance has not been applied to all citizens equally.
