Austin Court of Appeals Upholds Dismissal of $100 Million Bond Validation Suit

In a victory for the San Antonio Water System (SAWS), GBKH succeeded in obtaining an order from the Austin Court of Appeals upholding a lower court’s dismissal of a $100 million bond validation suit brought by the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority (GBRA). The suit sought approval of a bond issue under the Texas Expedited Declaratory Judgment Act, but the broader relief sought by GBRA would have curtailed SAWS’s water rights. The Court of Appeals held that the relief sought by GBRA exceeded the scope of the statute. GBKH partners Doug Brothers and Gary Lewis led the firm’s efforts, and the matter has been covered by The San Antonio Express-News. For more information, see Guadalupe Blanco River Authority v. Texas Attorney General, et al., 2015 WL 868871 (Tex. App.-Austin Feb. 26, 2015).
