Original Emergency Petition for Writ of Mandamus, August 13, 2018

This 58-page PDF is a copy of the Original Emergency Petition for a Writ of Mandamus filed by attorney Bill Aleshire on behalf of relator Ed English. It was filed directly with the Texas Supreme Court because the ballot language must be settled by no later than Setpember 7, 2018. If the mandamus is granted, it will order the City Council to post an agenda item and vote to approve language different from what was adopted August 9, 2018, so there was insuffiicent time to go through the lower courts.
