Gloves stay on in festivals suit against Travis County

Wednesday, October 7, 2015 by Caleb Pritchard

It appears that Travis County’s legal battle with a group that puts on an annual outdoor music festival will be more badminton than calcio fiorentino. A source familiar with the case tells the Austin Monitor that Euphoria Music and Camping Festival is no longer seeking separate hearings for an immediate temporary restraining order and injunction against the county’s new policy restricting the event’s hours of operation. Instead, after collegial discussions between lawyers for both sides, the festival operators have decided to pursue only a single hearing for a permanent injunction, to be scheduled on Wednesday, Nov. 4. Until then, it appears that we shouldn’t expect any smash-mouth legal jockeying to draw out the case or otherwise attempt to move it to the court of public opinion. Rats.
