Racing Commission Served with Temporary Restraining Order

At today’s meeting of the Texas Racing Commission, after partial coverage of the agenda items, Chairman Rolando Pablos announced that the Commission had been served with a temporary restraining order prohibiting them from taking a vote on matters concerning the repeal of Historical Racing rules, and adjourned the meeting.

The action was filed on behalf of the Texas Greyhound Association, Inc. in Cameron County.  A hearing is set for February 18th in Cameron County, to determine whether the temporary restraining order should be made a temporary injunction pending a full trial on the merits.
