SDM’s Casey Dobson, Jane Webre and Mike Merriman prevail in Texas 45 Injunction Hearing
SDM’s Casey Dobson, Jane Webre and Mike Merriman successfully defended the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA) against an application for preliminary injunction brought by a group of plaintiffs attempting to stop construction projects on State Highway 45 Southwest and MoPac South. Following an all-day injunction hearing in the Western District of Texas, the Court found that plaintiffs did not meet their burden to establish a substantial likelihood of success on the merits of their claims against CTRMA and the Texas Department of Transportation under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
The case is Fath, et al., v. Texas Department of Transportation and Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, No. 16cv00234-LY (W.D. Tex).
