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. The agreements, which apparently were unwritten, are alleged to have allowed certain property owners to avoid connecting properties to the wastewater system. An ordinance requires owners to connect their properties to the wastewater system when sewer lines are available. Gordon seeks the agreements as part of the discovery process on behalf of his clients, who are being prosecuted by the city under the ordinance. Gordon has argued the ordinance has not been applied to all citizens equally.
