CIT Construction was once considered one of the fastest growing companies in Houston. This changed when the company was hired by the University of Texas. After increasing the project cost with unreasonable change orders, the University fired the company from the project and refused to pay the bill. Because of sovereign immunity, CIT cannot sue for the money. This is just one example examined by the National Law Journal claiming that doing business with the state of Texas is a high-risk adventure. (May 29, 1995)
