LDC suit gets a court date

Tuesday, January 7, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

There is now a court date (Tuesday, Feb. 18) for the latest Land Development Code rewrite lawsuit. The suit, which was filed last month, alleges that the city has denied property owners their legal right to protest the mass rezonings that will result from the code revision. Doug Becker of Gray & Becker, who represents the 19 plaintiffs, released a statement about the scheduling, saying, “We believe that a quick answer to the legal issues raised in our lawsuit is in everyone’s best interest. The outcome of the case depends upon the Court’s legal interpretation of a few provisions of the Texas Government Code. The current uncertainty benefits no one.”
