District Court in Houston Denies TRO Against Policy Awarding Benefits to Same-Sex Couples

January 3rd, 2014

To recap, a state court judge granted a TRO in a case filed by the Harris County GOP. The City of Houston removed the case. And on Thursday, District Judge Lee Rosenthal declined to issue an injunction.

Brian Rogers has the story for the Chronicle.

Now the parties will have to argue whether the case should be returned to state court before the merits are touched.
