Texas Supreme Court issues ruling on Hays Street Bridge Project

State's highest court overturns 4th Court of Appeals ruling


AUSTIN, Texas – The Texas Supreme Court has reversed a ruling by the Texas 4th Court of Appeals concerning the Hays Street Bridge Project.

The highest court in the state ruled that the Hays Street Restoration Group can sue the city of San Antonio over how the city handled funds for the Hays Street Bridge Restoration Project.

The Restoration Group argued that money from the sale of the property destined for development by Alamo Beer should go to the Restoration Project and not be used as a landscape grant for the development.

The city argued it was immune from the lawsuit and the appeals court agreed.

But the Supreme Court disagreed, saying the city can be sued since it wasn't seeking monetary damages and sent the case back to the appeals court.

City officials said the ruling will not prevent the development from moving forward.
