#atxcouncil rebuked by DEMOCRAT Travis County Judge over #CodeNext Lawlessness

"Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear."
1 Timothy 5:20

Unexpected good news from an unexpected source:
The CodeNext petition ordinance will appear on November’s ballot and likely pour kerosene on Austin City Council elections this year just as campaign season begins to ramp up.

Travis County state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo issued the order on Monday ruling that it was premature for the Austin City Council to deny the petition ordinance.

If approved, the proposed ordinance would allow voters to decide whether they wish to vote on CodeNext and any future large-scale revisions of Austin’s land development code. It also calls for a waiting period before any voter-approved land-use rewrite is adopted.
Here's what's extraordinary: It's not that the city lost.  It's that they lost in Travis County District court.  That NEVER happens.

Usually, when there's a lawsuit challenging the lawless actions of any governmental entity in this county, the hack Travis County Democrat judges protect the government.  That didn't happen here.  That's VERY interesting.  [Note: The fact that a similar, though less pronounced, phenomenon occurred on the so-called "sick leave" lawsuit is likewise interesting.]

Bottom Line: You know the city's case is weak when Travis County judges can't invent legal fictions to prop them up....
